About this book

Sue Minter is one of the leading garden botanists of her generation. This is a second edition of her excellent guide to medicinal plant gardening.

'Minter...knows everything there is to know about medicinal plants. Here she shares her formidable knowledge of their history and use.' - Sainsbury's Magazine.

'Attractively illustrated throughout and with a mine of information on plants as diverse as eucalypts and cornflowers, everyone will find something of inspiration be it a single plant or a whole planting scheme.' - The Bookplace.

Contents

Completely revised and rewritten, Sue Minter's beautiful book on the healing properties of plants shows the layman how to harness the healing potential of his own garden. The text covers both the history of plants that help humans, together with practical advice on creating a garden with healing porperties - from plants for minor ailments, to plants for a macro-biotic diet, to a secret garden as a fantasy, scented gardens, textured gardens, healing sounds, or, perhaps, a special feature such as a white garden. Extremely practical, it offers clear, step-by-step advice for gardeners with easily accessible charts for plant uses, how they should be applied and when and where to grow them.
