STORIES AND HISTORY

 

 

The human story is inextricably linked with plants, in fact without the cultivation of early food crops human civilisation would never have reached the pinnacles that we see today.

Expanding Empires, the discovery of new worlds, and the search for perfection have all had their part to play.
