Discovering Herbs by Kay N. Sanecki
Model Number: 9780747805908
Since the early 1970s herbs have been recognised as part of our cultural heritage and many are now familiar garden plants. Others of ancient cultivation, and perhaps shrouded in legend, are now collectors’ items in the authentic herb garden, although no longer used as medicinal herbs. The decorative herb gardens of the present day are a manifestation of the interest there is in these ancient plants, and of our need to renew our knowledge of them. In this book the author includes a wide range of such plants, discussing their background, care and cultivation, their properties and prorogation. 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.
