The extraordinariness of plants

February 20, 2010

Working for so long at the farm and landscape level you quickly lose sight of what attracted you to plants in the first place. Those early experiments in primary school classrooms, sights and smells on school walks that were only a few yards from the school gate but felt like a whole new world, a great big adventure. I won’t go on, its a bit downhill from there. I have just finished reading Nicholas Harberd’s Seed to Seed and it brings to life the beauty of plants in a rather nice through his John Innes based research group’s work, general interests and the passing seasons based around the cells and systems of one plant. And Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill even manage to get a wrap. Read it!
