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.

How to grow or gather herbal plants and use them for cookery, health and beautyL'autore:
In 1975 Roger Phillips began his life’s major work of photographing and publishing pictures of the world’s garden plants. He set out to develop an encyclopedic collection of books to show the difference between plants as diverse as mosses, roses and annuals. His first book, Wild Flowers of Britain (1977), was a huge success, selling 400,000 copies in the first year. He has since written 20 additional volumes (often with his co-author Martyn Rix) selling over 6million copies worldwide. His latest book is Mushrooms. Roger has written and presented two major six-part TV series on gardening (BBC & Channel 4). Famed for his ebullient personality and garish red glasses, he has become a well-recognised figure in the world of gardening.
