Have spent ages looking for the perfect herb book that shows both how to grow them and how to use them around the house in cooking, medication and crafts. This is the best herb book I have come across- really interesting and covers everything I wanted to know in a well laid out, attractive book.

have had this book for many years and find it invaluable as a reference guide. as a friend is cultivating her own herbs i knew that this book would be invaluable for her as it covers all parts of the plants uses and different uses for the extracted oils for beauty products, medicines as well as cooking. i only have one herb book and this is it; it's all you need.

Format: Paperback
Most National Trust properties in the UK are grand old manors originally owned by nobility who liked their comforts and had the means to do things right. Unfortunately their upkeep is prohibitive in cost and many buildings and grounds have been deeded to the Trust that does an excellent job in maintaining them, educating us on the traditions of those times and making them available to the public. As herb gardens were almost always a part of the original master plan, wherever possible they have been restored and we are very fortunate to have a glimpse of this part of the life of the well to do of an earlier era. Collectively, the National Trust must have as many different varieties of herbs as can be found in the country and we are fortunate indeed that we have this book which is indispensable for anyone who wants to understand why our ancestors put such great emphasis on herbs, the value of herbs to us today and how to cultivate a selection in our own garden. Not only are herbs a delight to the touch, smell, taste and sight but you can have a herb tea garden, a culinary herb garden, a medical herb garden, a flowering herb garden and a fragrant herb garden. Moreover, we are told which herbs are suitable for edgings, low hedges, ground cover or a variety of other uses which make herbs multi-functional.
We are told that there was a time when all plants were important to human kind - they were thought of as children of mother earth - each marked by divinity, worthy of respect and important on the physical, mental and spiritual levels. Today, herbs are considered by many to be useful only as seasoning in the kitchen. Study of the history of herbs, going back 5000 years, is intriguing in itself for their use in ceremony, magic, medicine and superstition.
