Since the early 1970s herbs have been recognised as part of our cultural heritage and many are now familiar garden plants. Others of ancient cultivation are now collectors' items in the authentic herb garden. In this book the author includes a wide range of such plants, discussing their background, care and cultivation, their properties and propagation. Medicinal plants, pot herbs, culinary delights, household sweeteners, dye plants and those with fragrance are all included. This is a book for both beginner and enthusiast.

Kay N. Sanecki is an established horticultural writer, working especially on fragrant plants, herbs and garden history. Her formal training was in horticulture and she has worked for the Royal Horticultural Society and in horticultural publishing for many years.
