This work offers a checklist of English native plants, providing gardeners with the full range of indigenous trees, shrubs, flowers, herbs, grasses and ferns that merit a place in private and public gardens. The authors show how gardeners can play a part in conserving England's plant heritage. Local plants can lend gardens a sense of place and local identity, as well as providing havens for birds, butterflies and other animals. By growing garden-worthy natives with exotic plants, even the smallest outdoor space can be a living larder for wildlife, while contributing to the conservation of England's plant heritage
