Bremness runs an herb garden & nurseryFrom Booklist:
This is the thirteenth volume in Dorling Kindersley's authoritative Eyewitness Handbooks, guides to the natural world. Here is probably the most comprehensive guide to herbs ever published; 700 species are covered, augmented by 1,500 color photographs. Each compact entry gives the herb's scientific family and species names; common species name; alternative common name from native regions; physical description; uses; unusual or notable features; habitat; uses; and related species, forms, varieties, or cultivars. Symbols indicate which parts of the plant are used (flower, leaf, root, bark, seed, etc.). The book is divided into six parts: trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials, annuals and biennials, vines, and other herbs (including fungi and non-seed-bearing plants). A lucid and informative introduction explains in detail the parts of herbs: leaves and stems; flowers; seeds, fruits, and nuts; roots; bark, woods, and resin; and essential oils. The introduction also offers tips on using herbs in cooking, their healing powers, herbs with other applications, and herb gardens. This visual guide to the world's herbs is a gem; no gardener should be without it. George Cohen
