Issue 9 of The Plant is a celebration of summer, a testament to the period of colour and vitality nature delivers once a year for just a few short months. Its only natural then that it should be filled with flowers. Japanese photographer Yoshinori Mitzutani provides a beautiful photo essay on the flora of London's parks, while Mark Borthwick supplies a visual ode to lush plant life of Jamaica. The issue's plant monogram is dedicated to the humble yet irresistible geranium, including illustrations by Jean Jullien, Mélanie Dautreppe-Liermann, Ken Kagami, Mrzyk & Moriceau, Tim Lahan and Okamura Yuta.

Summer is the perfect time to get out reconnect with nature, with friends, and with loved ones. To find a paradise of your very own, just like Brazilian visual artist Roberto Burle Marx, whose life, legacy and garden parties are discussed one of this issue's inspiring features. Elsewhere Kitty Travers shares her delicious ice cream recipes, Elein Fleiss imparts her wisdom on herbs, Antoni Arola details his passion for seeds and seed-pods, Kuba Ryniewicz describes a world without plants and Annick Weber travels to the Cornish coats to discuss the virtues of sea weed. 

Flowers celebrate life, but also death, and so Mark Colle delivers a series of bouquets commemorating the lives of legendary musicians including David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, and Nina Simone. While its important to remember those who have left us, we shouldn't dwell too much on the past. As octogenarian artist Tomi Ungerer puts it, when summer is over "don't hope, cope". The Plant visited Tomi at his home in Ireland for a tour of his own private paradise. Plus a lesson on the linen process, how to preserve dandelions, musings about territories and borders and and exploration of desire paths. All this more in The Plant's most colourful issue to date.
