About this book

Contains the entire text of the first work (a poem) written in the English language on gardening and composed more than 600 years ago. It includes a full facsimilie of the original manuscript which dates from 1400 AD. The poem tells of the cultivation of rosemary, saffron, parsley and colewort, and also includes a long litany of other culinary and medicinal herbs, thus this book is not just the earliest gardening manual in the English language it is also the earliest Irish one.
