From the Author
After abundant research, writing, and seemingly endless revising, my first herbal is launched. I initially embarked on this undertaking last year for the workshop I gave focused on herbs and medicinal plants of the British Isles. Participants were so enthusiastic, as have been many of those who follow my blog, that I was inspired to go all out and turn this project into a much longer work. Regarding the images, some are photographs of our garden, many are royalty free images I purchased, and a few are in public domain. I hope you enjoy
Plants For A Medieval Herb Garden in the British Isles. A lot of these plants were brought to America with the early colonists and are widespread here now. Others are happiest in the British Isles.
Note: The plant index is in the back of the book.
