Herbaceous by Paul Evans
“The John Clare of his generation.” The Guardian
“His pieces are intensely local, full of cloud and light, breezy.” John Vidal
Herbaceous is a journey which follows the colour pulse of plants throughout the year, it is gardening with words. It is a book of audacious botany and poetic vision which asks us to look at anew at our relationship with plants and celebrates their power to nourish the human spirit.
Paul Evans spent many years as a gardener working in rose nurseries, graveyards, historic gardens in Wales and a botanical garden in New York. He is a writer, broadcaster and award-winning playwright, best known for his ‘Country Diary’ in The Guardian and various natural history programmes and drama-documentaries for BBC Radio 4.

About Little Toller Books
Toller n river valley in West Dorset. Recorded in the Domesday
survey as Tolre, derived from a Celtic word for stream in a hollow valley.
Little Toller Books was born in 2008 as an imprint of the Dovecote Press, a family-run publishing company that has specialised in books about rural life and local history since 1974. Little Toller was started with a singular purpose: to revive forgotten and classic books about nature and rural life in the British Isles.
The success of Little Toller’s Nature Classics has enabled it to grow into an independent publisher, attuned to writers and artists who seek inventive ways to reconnect us with the natural world and to celebrate the places we live in.
