 Author: Brooke, Jocelyn

Jocelyn Brooke

“Jocelyn Brooke’s love affair with wild flowers and home-made fireworks began when he was growing up in Kent and exploring the countryside of the Elham Valley. But there was one particular flower, especially rare and beautiful, which became an obsession. Over three decades and through two world wars, in the deserts of Libya and the woodlands of Italy, in the chalk downs of Kent, Sussex and Hampshire, he searched continually for his most beloved and elusive Orchis militaris, the military orchid.”
