How to Be a Bad Botanist By Simon Barnes AudioBook summary

Can you tell a tomato from a grape? Lawn from an oak tree? Then congratulations – you are a botanist.

Self-confessed bad birdwatcher Simon Barnes thought he knew nothing about plants. He didn’t object to them: trees are interesting, because birds perch in them; plants are useful as they create habitats and birds live in habitats. But while admiring the tenacity of some sea kale and yellow-horned poppy to thrive on an inhospitable shingle beach, he was struck by a truth – it all begins with plants.

In this funny and inspiring book, Simon Barnes tells the story of a lifelong relationship with plants, and the realisation of the fact. Taking us from thinking ourselves ignorant about plants, to gently starting to observe seasons, patterns and places, Barnes guides us on a journey to better observing the beauty and diversity of the natural world.
