Weeds is a beautiful collection of the most fascinating vagabond plants around. Gorgeous botanical illustrations from the Royal Horticultural Society's archives highlight the delicate charms of 50 captivating species, while in-depth profiles provide key information for the modern gardener on the identification, cultivation and usefulness of weeds.

These subversive species no longer need to be seen as "plants out of place". Their natural untamed beauty, ability to thrive under challenging conditions, and the attraction of growing species native to their surroundings have all taken weeds from undesirable to covetable. In the modern wild garden, where harmony with nature is key, weeds are finally getting their moment in the sun.
