I design Herbal, physic & all types of Medicinal gardens using dandelions and nettles - what some would consider weeds (unwanted plants). I regard these as valued herbs with great benefits nutritionaly and medicinally. This book has lots of interesting plants with great benefits to offer. I like the way it is written with stories associated to the plants, it is now a valued part of my collection to create my Gardensinharmony.com

I've always considered wild plants to be a wasted resource - after all, our ancestors would have looked upon a wild flower meadow as a medicine chest - now I'm mustering up the confidence to go foraging for food. A nice book with a helpful identification guide for each species as well as history, folklore and recipes

Excellent book with good descriptions and details on 50 common weeds. Very clear uses and warnings on where to be careful. Thoroughly enjoy reading it and refer to it frequently for both identifying and working out how to use them.
A book this size cannot be comprehensive so I use this alongside several other weed, wild flower and foraging books.
Photos are good but I would have liked more than the mainly one photo of each plant as having photos of different stages of the plants lifecycle would help - but that is a quibble and would have made it longer and I suspect more expensive.
Thoroughly enjoyable and useful book!

This book was bought as a Christmas gift for my weed-eating adult son, in the hope that he will not poison himself! My knowledge of the subject is quite extensive, but nevertheless, there was so much in this book that I wanted to keep it for myself. It is beautifully illustrated and clearly written. A fine and informative book.

Interesting reading but I expected more from this book - perhaps there could have been a bit more on identifying the plants to help those not sure of their botany.
