A London Floral - An illustrated guide for flower lovers
An illustrated guide – unmissable destinations for flower lovers
By Natasha Goodfellow Illustrated by Clover Robin
London is often touted as the greenest city in Europe, but what if you yearn for a little more colour in your life? What does Britain’s capital have to offer those who want to quite literally stop and smell the roses? Or those who want to buy armfuls of blooms for their lovers, friends or themselves? Lots, as it happens.
This guide leads you on a fragrant trail of London’s key floral destinations, from markets and nurseries to botanic and physic gardens via trend-setting florists and flower schools. It reveals secret spaces bursting with blossom and points you to the rose gardens, herb gardens and record-breaking borders in its better known parks.
And if you want to dine among flowers, learn about flowers or see how they can transform urban architecture, it’s all here too, just waiting to be discovered.
A London Floral is a beautifully illustrated map which folds down to a handy pocket-sized guide listing c.85 addresses of interest. Presented in an attractive slip case and divided by area, it is clear and easy to use and appealing to art lovers, garden lovers and city lovers alike.
