The Planthunter: Truth, Beauty, Chaos, and Plants

By Georgina Reid

Photographs by Daniel Shipp

From street gardens in Los Angeles to grand country estates in Australia, The Planthunter: Truth, Beauty, Chaos, and Plants is a visceral and immersive exploration of the exceptional and ordinary ways people around the world find purpose and connection through the act of gardening. It explodes common perceptions of what a garden is and can be, and it encourages readers to fall in love with the natural world through falling in love with plants. It’s for the plant curious, the plant killer, the plant lover, and everyone in between. It is also a beautiful book—jam-packed with soulful, considered, and immersive stories that are visually supported with hundreds of lush photographs.
