The book is a new edition of my first book Herbal Bounty (1984). It features chapters on plant names, garden design, propagation, harvesting and drying herbs, and articles on 91 herbs, including descriptions, cultivation and propagation (including commercial growing), culinary, medicinal, and fragrant uses. An extensive bibliography, glossary and resource list are included. Richly illustrated with over 100 pen & inks and watercolors by D.D. Dowden. Over 100 black & white and color photos. I get more compliments on this book than any other., sometimes described as an herbal insider's classic. Gibbs Smith Publisher. 1993. 234 pp. Softcover. $19.95. Order from the Amazon.com link below.
