Aimed at both the general reader and the amateur naturalist, this guide presents 150 of the best known and most commonly used herbs. Each species is described in detail with information on its different uses, and is illustrated with a colour painting. The introduction contains advice on growing, collecting, harvesting and storing herbs, as well as explaining how to use them safely. A section on the history of herbalism and a glossary are also included. The book can be used for both home reference and as a companion in the field.
