Summary
"A whole new dimension in the lives of plants, from the most bizarre to the most beautiful is revealed in this sensational new series shot over the course of a year. As he traces them from their beginnings on land to their vital place in nature today, David Attenborough explores the fascinating world of plants, exposing new revelations along the way. He moves from our time scale to theirs, revealing the true nature of plants as creatures that are every bit as dynamic and aggressive as animals. David discovers a microscopic world that's invisible to the naked eye, where insects feed and breed, where flowers fluoresce and where plants communicate with each other and with animals using scent and sound. He meets the extraordinary animals and fungi that have unbreakable ties with the plant world, from hawk moths and bats to tiny poison dart frogs, a giant tortoise and a fungus that can control the mind. And he does all this in one unique place, a microcosm of the whole plant world where 90% of all known plant species are represented: The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew"--ABC-TV website
