About the Author:

Eleanour Sophy Sinclair Rohde (1881 - 1950) was a British gardener, garden historian, and horticultural writer. She collected unusual herb and vegetable varieties, and also worked as a garden designer. One of her best known designs was the herb garden for Lullingstone Castle in Kent, England. Her work did much to encourage the modern popularity of herb gardens.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

...Even those of us with the smallest suburban plots can make a delightful herb garden, and no matter how tiny it is a perpetual joy. Herbs ask so little and they give so much. All that the majority of our common herbs want is a fairly poor soil (the poorer the better for the aromatic herbs) and plenty of sunlight. People who know nothing of herbs imagine that it might be a dull garden consisting of only foliage plants. But there is no blue more beautiful than that of borage, whilst valerian, mallows, marigold and the stately mullein (to mention only a few examples) make lovely splashes of colour. There need be no limit to the size of the garden, for, as one eminent herbalist tells us, there are on an average about seven hundred different remedies for most of the common ailments, but it is undoubtedly the moderate-sized garden which is the most attractive, This little book only deals with the few well-known English wild and garden herbs which every one can grow and use....(From Preface.)
