About this book

Presents 80 different varieties of herb, with some mention of more than 700 related species and cultivars. The author argues that herbs can not only be used for flavouring, but that they can be used throughout garden as beautiful flowering plants with real ornamental and landscape merit. This book serves as a practical guide with detailed information on propagating and growing, and some rather unusual suggestions for their culinary use.

'He is a remarkable man, a wildly intelligent mystic.' Caroline Myss 'William Bloom has an unimpeachable reputation in the field of holism.' The Late John Diamond
