We live in a world of seeds. This wonderful book is fascinating, inspiring and entertaining.
You will never be able to look at an orange pip or a sunflower seed in the same way again.
……Ranging from the human-head-sized coconut to the dust-fine contents of the vanilla orchid pod, we see how seeds are far more than lumps of plant tissue, waiting around for watering before they spring into action. They are a plant's babies, lifeboats of genetic succession cast off into the sea of an uncertain future.
This is a book of knowledge, adventure, and wonder, spun by an award-winning writer with both the charm of a fireside story-teller and the hard-won expertise of a field biologist.
A fascinating scientific adventure, it is essential reading for anyone who loves to see a plant grow.
... And the chapter on coffee is sure to be your favorite...
