About this book

Margaret Roberts shares her secrets for creating an edible garden that will not only nurture and heal the body with the health-giving plants it produces, but will also be a place of beauty to nurture the soul. Each plant is dealt with in detail, with advice on the best conditions for growing it, and how to harness its healing and culinary potential.

The recipes are easy to prepare and range from health-boosting soups and salads to mouth-watering desserts and party fare. And there's a wide range of medicinal and cosmetic preparations, from teas and tonics to creams and lotions. Beautifully presented and packed with information.
