In order to save the world's most endangered plants, Carlos Magdalena travels from the forests of Peru to deep within the Australian outback in search of rare and vulnerable species. After stops in Mauritius and Bolivia, this high-energy horticulturist returns to the U.K., and parts the curtain on his lab at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, home of the largest botanical collection in the world. Passionate and plainspoken, Magdalena explains his work on groundbreaking, out-of-left-field techniques for rescuing species from extinction, encouraging them to propagate and thrive once again.
"Carlos is an inspiration to me. He's the perfect spokesperson for the plants of the world." —Jane Goodall
