|Galanthus 'George Elwes' planted November 2010|
Browsing the gardening blogs recently I came across this video (see link below), posted on Lost in the Landscape. It has some very thought-provoking insights into the place of plants in the philosophical world order, and explores sensibilities in plants, especially in the root tips, through their neurobiology to theoretical applications in technology. Professor Stefano Marcuso speaks English in a charmingly Italian fashion, so the subtitles may be found useful.
