It covers over 1000 herbs grown worldwide for their culinary, aromatic, medicinal, and economic uses, as well as for their decorative qualities in the garden. The HSA Encyclopedia of Herbs and their Uses responds to the widespread contemporary interest in herbs and the ways in which they have been used since ancient times. This comprehensive reference work provides a wealth of information on herbs grown and used all over the world, for gardeners, herbalists and cooks alike. The extensive catalog of color photographs provides a unique color guide. In addition to every species familiar to gardeners, it also includes a number of rarely seen examples from remote corners of the globe. Each photograph is accompanied by a detailed botanical description of the plant's genus and species, its growth habit, size and hardiness, the part of the plant that is used, and for what purpose. The dictionary section gives detailed information on uses of each herb, domestic applications in cooking, beauty and medicine to commercial processing in the perfume and food industries. Uses in Chinese, Ayurvedic, and native American medicine are given, and a boxed section after each genus describes how it grows and is harvested. Garden designs and planting plans , illustrated with photographs and artworks created especially for this book, provide the gardener with a wealth of ideas for planting and growing herbs, adaptable for both the smaller plot and the complete traditional herb garden on the grand scale.
