Herbs in the Garden.
Cloth, 8vo, 25 cm, xiii, 370 pp,  pp of plates. From the blurb: "As plants 'for use and for delight' herbs form a very broad and varied category and are grown not only for culinary medicinal or cosmetic purposes but sometimes for their own sake as attractive plants. Allen Paterson, who has very wide experience of the plants about which he writes, shows the superb and often undervalued heritage of herbal plants from which we can freely draw today. He describes how they have been used in the past and suggests ways in which suitable plants can be used in any and every garden now.There is a chapter on herbs in garden design, including information on grouping, climate, planting and visual effects, and another on ideas for gardens, from the largest landscape garden to the small window box, with advice on the terrace herb garden, herbs in the shady courtyard, the kitchen herb bed, herbs indoors and many other aspects. Further chapters deal with the year in the herb garden and the uses of herbs in the kitchen, and there is a section on herbal cooking, with numerous recipes. The main part of the book is a comprehensive alphabetical list of herbal plants, from Acanthus mollis to Vitex agnus castus and including conifers, with detailed practical gardening information, plus extensive and useful planting charts."
