the early 1970s herbs have been recognised as part
of our cultural heritage and many are now familiar
garden plants. Others of ancient cultivation are
now collectors' items in the authentic herb garden.
In this book the author includes a wide range of
such plants, discussing their background, care and
cultivation, their properties and propagation.
Medicinal plants, pot herbs, culinary delights,
household sweeteners, dye plants and those with
fragrance are all included. This is a book for both
beginner and enthusiast.
