Synopsis

* Produced in association with the Chelsea Physic Garden * Superbly illustrated with photographs from the author's own herb garden, Chelsea Physic Garden and travels worldwide as well as plates from ancient herbals * An authoritative but accessible text designed to appeal to experts and novices Herbs contribute to many aspects of everyday living. Healing herbs have always been used as remedies; herbs are used in the kitchen for flavour and aroma; herbs fragrance perfumes and cosmetics and are used for aromatherapy oils. More than that, herbs are easy to grow and provide fragrance, colour and texture in the garden. In this fascinating book, Deni Bown tells the story of each herb, providing an intimate portrait of its power and properties. The profiles feature the most popular and productive uses and provide notes to gardeners on how to grow each herb. Special features discuss a wider variety of herbs grouped as herbal relaxants, stimulants, balsams, colourings, tonics and poisons.

Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs and botanical plates from ancient herbals, this book is a source book for mind, body and soul, as well as a testament to the natural power and beauty of herbs.
