GUIDE TO HERBS: With Journal

JENNY LINFORD    Book Number: 87255    Product format: Paperback

With dreamy names like Jack-by-the-hedge, burdock, mugwort, calamint, winter purslane, clove pink, jo pye weed, meadowsweet, lady's bedstraw, purple loosestrife, sweet cicely, evening primrose, cowslip, cinquefoil, Solomon's seal, betony, summer savory and heartsease, herbs have been used for food, shelter, medicine, perfume and cosmetics. Among these valuable plants is one group with a long history of use which we know as herbs. There is a long history of cultivating herbs dating back to ancient Egypt where herbs were used extensively in temples for rituals and cleansing. In Islamic cultures, useful plants were grown within enclosures. Roman villa grounds also traditionally included extensive herb gardens. The 16th century saw the rise of the knot garden in England and today people continue to grow herbs. Here is an attractive handbook of information on more than 100 of the world's most widely used herbs with a handy journal for you to record your experiences of growing and using them. Superb colour photos help identification, key facts on medicinal, culinary and cosmetic uses, history and folklore in one beautifully illustrated folder. 144 page glossy paperback.
