Do you wish to know something slightly different about the ancient and wonderful world of herbs?
‘The Not So Ordinary World of Herbs’ is an informative yet entertaining look into the more unusual aspects of the herb plant world.
The text is accompanied by vivid, contemporary photos and offers a unique insight into some lesser known herbs, including ones that many may regard as weeds.
Many herb books focus on just the cooking or medicinal side. However in this book, the New Zealand author delves into different aspects of the herb garden such as Victorian plant symbolism, herb magic, folk lore and dyes. It creates an interesting picture - both into the past and into the future of herbs.
