Publisher's Description

Published in association with the Smithsonian Institution, this accessible, attractive, and detailed handbook combines 1,500 vivid full-color photos with descriptions of more than 700 species. This authoritative, systematic and clear photographic approach marks a new generation of identification guides.

This comprehensive book explains what an herb is, identifies which parts are collected and prepared, and describes different uses for each—from cooking and medicine to beauty treatment, aromatherapy, and crafts. Essential details of the species’ size, habitat, and natural range complete every entry, and a concise glossary explains technical and scientific terms.

Each expertly written entry combines a concise description with annotated photographs to highlight the herb’s distinguishing features and chief uses. Color illustrations show the whole plant or tree in its most typical form, while color-coded bands provide quick reference facts.

The guidebook is authored by Lesley Bremness, writer and presenter of the TV show The World of Herbs, who has studied exotic herbs from all around the world. She is also a gifted organic gardener, having first been "discovered" when she won an herb garden design competition at the Chelsea Flower Show, London.
