"PLANTS THAT RESTORE" is (as far as we know) the world's first collection of botanical illustrations of plants that have been used to restore areas stripped of vegetation at mine sites. Responsible mining companies use low-care native plants to replant lands after mining has ceased. These are just a few of the many plant species that have successfully been used to restore landscapes.

This collection was illustrated by members of the NORTH DOWNS BOTANICAL ARTISTS in cooperation with KEW GARDENS who provided the herbarium specimens used as models for the illustrations. Contributing artists include: Gill Cann, Elizabeth Farrar, Debbie Craddock, Lorraine Hawkins, Joan Jowell-Jones, and Mary Albanese.

The original artworks are housed at KEW GARDENS in England. Click on the individual plant image to see the entire illustration and find out more about each plant's amazing properties and uses.
