About this book

This guide brings together an extraordinary collection of over 80 flowers, trees and herbs that not only give a magnificent show in the garden, but also have remarkable healing properties and can be used in cooking and as cosmetic alternatives. The author 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 to grow the plant and information on how to use it medicinally and deliciously. The second section of the guide comprises a selection of recipes from the author's own collection. These recipes range from health-boosting soups and salads to mouthwatering desserts and exquisite party fare.
