The Gardener's Companion to Medicinal Plants; An A-Z of Healing Plants and Home Remedies

by Monique Simmonds, Melanie-Jayne Howes & Jason Irving

The beautifully illustrated Gardener’s Companion to Medicinal Plants is an A-Z of healing plants and home remedies, featuring more than 270 plants used for their medicinal properties, as well as 24 practical projects for homemade teas, oils, tinctures and creams with a tradition of safe use. Each plant is illustrated with a beautiful work of botanical art from Kew's archives. 

Many of our most important drugs are derived from plants and many more are yet to be discovered: much research in this area is overseen by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew where the book’s three authors are employed. This contemporary Herbal offers a fresh take on the 5,000-year-old tradition of recording plants with medicinal value and with life-changing benefits.
