From edible treats to therapeutic remedies, unearth the healing potential of plants both wild and cultivated. Featuring forty herb profiles and seven medicinal weeds ideal for foraging, learn how to set up and maintain a planted or potted garden for a healthful life.

Discover the healing power of your very own medicinal garden with edible recipes for cakes, biscuits, salads, soups, teas and many more. The book features easy, natural remedies for your skin, gut, muscles, heart and mind with recipes for oils, tinctures, compresses, steams and washes for health and healing.

The Illustrated Garden Series

Gardens are an endless supply of bounty. Many of our everyday needs can be met with a garden. This new series, referencing seasons rather than months, works with authors and illustrators to offer practical information in an original package on how to cultivate, grow, pick, treat, heal, observe, preserve and learn from the garden.
