Scottish Heather Book

Some books you write because you desperately want to, others because some kind publisher waves a chequebook under your nose!  I have to admit that the Scottish Heather Book fell into the latter category – but it was fascinating finding out how deeply heather was woven into Scottish literature, culture and folklore, and a real pleasure to find out a little more about the plant in its various forms. Some of the uses heather was put to surprised me – I certainly didn’t know until I researched the subject that bundles of heather – “reenges” – used to be sold on the streets of Edinburgh as pot scourers.
