RHS Weeds gathers together 50 untamed and beautifully wild plant species, illustrated with exquisite botanical images.

These subversive species no longer need to be seen as 'plants out of place'. In the modern garden, where harmony with nature and the ability to thrive under challenging conditions are key, weeds are finally getting their moment in the sun. RHS Weeds highlights the delicate charms of some of the most fascinating vagabond plants around. Beautiful botanical illustrations, including many from the Royal Horticultural Society's collections, and captivating profiles by RHS author Gareth Richards, provide key information for the modern gardener on the characteristics, usefulness and cultivation of these unsung heroes of the plant world.
