About this book

Language: French

With the help of this practical guide, you can transform the weeds in your garden into allies.

For the first time, a guide presents weeds in a beneficial light. It advocates a soft control of these plants rather than mere eradication, because weeds are more useful than you thought. The books contains tips on their insecticidal qualities, medicinal properties, pollinating function, taste or culinary qualities, or aesthetics.

From ingredients in smoothie recipes, information on their characteristics, and the possibility of living with weeds, this practical guide shows you the wild plants that live in gardens and cities.

Summary in French:
Grâce à ce guide pratique, transformez les "mauvaises herbes" en alliées pour votre jardin.

Pour la première fois, un guide présente les "mauvaises herbes" sous un jour bénéfique. Il préconise un contrôle doux de ces plantes plutôt qu'une simple éradication car les herbes sauvages s'avèrent plus utiles que ce que l'on croit. Des astuces précisent comment les utiliser pour leurs vertus insecticides ou médicinales, leur fonction mellifère ou leurs qualités gustatives et culinaires aussi bien qu'esthétiques.

De la description des espèces aux recettes de smoothies, des informations sur leurs caractéristiques et leur incidence aux conseils pour vivre en équilibre avec les mauvaises herbes, ce guide pratique vous présente les plantes sauvages qui vivent dans les jardins et dans les villes.
