This is a unique photographic guide to herbs and plants from all over the world which are grown for their healing and culinary properties. Over 400 plants are illustrated in colour, making this the most comprehensively illustrated book on the subject. It includes descriptions of the plants' distinctive features for identification, as well as botanical information showing where each is found and how to grow it yourself or gather it from the wild. The text relates the history of each plant, describes its traditional uses in cooking, medicine or cosmetics and, where appropriate, details modern research supporting long-held beliefs about the efficacy of the plant.
