Seeds of Blood and Beauty

seedsbloodbeautybigScottish Plant Explorers.

Seeds of blood and beauty follows the exploits of the great Scottish plant explorers of the 18th and 19th centuries; men who left their native shores in search of exotic specimens, often risking life and limb for sake of botany. Their quests took them to far flung territories, swapping Aberdeen for Africa, Falkirk for China, Glasgow for Afghanistan and Auchinblae for Antarctica.
