One Thousand Shades of Green: A Year in Search of Britain's Wild Plants.

When lockdown made daily dog walks his sole permitted outdoor pursuit, Mike Dilger found a long-buried botanical passion coming to the surface. He gave himself a mission: to see a thousand different wild plants in one calendar year and assess how flora is faring in modern Britain. From Cornwall to Kent and Breckland to the Scottish Highlands, exploring habitats from city centres to mountain tops, Mike meets resilient reserve wardens and courageous conservationists, and experiences first-hand the many difficulties associated with saving our rarest plants.
