The Scottish composer James Oswald (1710-1769) was a professional composer to George III, ending his life a wealthy man with many published compositions to his credit. For his 'Airs for the Seasons', he wrote a total of ninety-six miniatures, each depicting a different plant or flower in its particular season. "This combines my two passions of music and wild plants," says Alan Titchmarsh. He particularly likes the 'Marvel of Peru', also known as Mirabilis jalapa or the four o'clock flower.
