Plants are evolutionary big shots. Having existed on the land for millions of years, they have evolved into extremely specialised species, which by competing with one another, are changing the face of our planet. They were present when humanity emerged, and they essentially contributed to the development of communities and the diversification of cultures. It is worth getting to know our “green brothers and sisters” better, and to discover that they are not as predictable as they seem. We will take you into to a world of plants as you have not seen them before: cunning tricksters, taste creators, common strength athletes and vulnerable beauties – the evolutionary winners.
