About the Author

Lesley Bremness changed careers after winning an herb garden design competition at the Chelsea Flower Show, London, in 1977. Since this success, she has written and presented her own television series, The World of Herbs, designed the herb garden for the Geffrye Museum in London, and traveled around the world studying exotic and lesser-known herbs. She is the author of the best selling Complete Book of Herbs, also published by Dorling Kindersley. Lesley Bremness maintains a keen interest in organic gardening, and her herb garden is open to the public. She also runs a garden design service specializing in sacred spaces.
