An interesting read, but I find the growing details pretty scant.
I already have many good books on herbal remedies including The Herbal Drug Store, and the Illustrated book of herbs, and I was hoping this was going to be more geared towards gardening of these in the UK, rather than just another list of drugs picked from the wild.
I find it strange that a botanist cannot put a book together that could at least mention the fantastic herbal gardens in many stately homes and how they grew and utilised these herbs.
I did think this would be more of a book containing the plant, what it looks like, where and how you would grow it.
