Into The Foliage: Where The Wild Flowers Grow with Leif Bersweden

May 23, 2022

With it being the month of #NoMowMay & many people celebrating letting grasses & flowers grow in their gardens, Jan & Ryan thought it would be perfect to invite botanist & author back onto the show to talk about his upcoming new book, Where The Wild Flowers Grow.

Leif tells us what we can expect from this new & exciting new book & what aims he has for the reader to take away.  Leif unpacks the journey he went on to find rare wildflowers around the UK & Ireland during the challenging pandemic years & share a tale of how one flower, almost ended with his arrest on New Years Day.

You can pre-order Leif's book here.
