Book News Annotation:

McVicar has won many gold medals from the Royal Horticultural Society, and her farms boasts the largest collection of culinary and medicinal herbs in Britain. Her accounts of the classic herbs include folklore, varieties, cultivation, medicinal and culinary uses, and high quality color photographs. She seems to be most interested in the visual aspects of the garden, so readers with other orientations will need additional sources of information. Originally published in 1994 as Jekka's Complete Herb Book by Kyle Cathie Limited in London. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
