This book should be of interest to adventurous gardeners who would like to get closer to nature and learn more about its therapeutic plants and how they can help us.

There are wild herbs growing all around us but not many of us know what they are, in which way they are used and how to care for them in our gardens.

It provides details on how to identify and cultivate using organic and biodynamic methods. The wide range of habitats that they enjoy in the wild can be replicated in our gardens.

Horticultural terms, plant names, herbal classifications, the seasons, the elements and their effects and reflection on the seasonal life of a gardener are explained.

The Scots Gaelic names help us to understand their applications, sometimes revealing little known information. Archaeological evidence and historic uses also provide many indications.

Some species are under threat from habitat loss and over-harvesting, so taking these into cultivation can reduce the pressure on them in the wild.

Duncan Ross has spent a lifetime looking for herbs in some quite remote parts of the world. His plant hunting stories give an insight into these adventures.

These are driven by a passion for helping others to lead healthier lives by growing and using herbs.

The Passionate Grower's Guide to Herb planting book is absolutely brilliant.

I have bought hundreds of books on herbs over many years, since being a Medical Herbalist, but this is far the best book on growing herbs and such useful information including medicinal uses. It's so helpful to see where the herbs originate from.

I wish I had had it many years ago, when I first starting buying seeds and herbs from you, as many more would have survived!

Covers masses of herbs, it`s clear and concise and so informative and so easy to use and refer to. Many thanks, as all your incredible and extensive experience of your every day living with these amazing plants, just shines through.
