24. Art

“I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?” said van Gogh. We agree. This month on The Planthunter we’re exploring the connections between the natural and human worlds, through art. We’re visiting Wendy Whiteley’s garden, chatting to Marc Martin, talking botanical illustration, and musing on whether gardens are art and more. Join us!
