The past year has seen renewed interest in the nature on our doorsteps, as can be seen in the work of amateur botanists, old and young, identifying wildflowers and chalking their names on pavements. But beyond the garden wall lie cultivated plants, each with a unique tale to tell. 'The Grove' takes twenty species and uncovers their remarkable secrets. This book follows the author on a walk down a street in London. Each chapter will focus on one front garden and a crucial plant that it contains. In the background the story of a strange year in the city will be told.
