A Modern Herbal




A charming, modern miscellany of herbs - for gardeners, cooks and armchair botanists alike.

Lovingly cultivated by horticultural expert and Guardian columnist Alys Fowler, this charming miscellany celebrates everything there is to know about herbs and their significance in our gardens, kitchens, medicine cupboards and daily lives.

With her unparalleled horticultural experience, Alys explores the abundance of uses of these incredible plants and writes beautifully about how herbs have become entwined in our lives past and present. Designed to inform, entertain and delight, this book offers a fusion of botanical, practical, cultural and historical information, accompanied by beautiful line illustrations, and will be a welcome and well-thumbed addition to many a potting shed, kitchen shelf and bedside table.

After finishing her training, she worked as a journalist for the trade magazine, Horticulture Week, and then joined the Gardeners' World team as a horticultural researcher.

Alys is now one of the lead presenters of the programme and has presented a spin-off programme called The Edible Garden.
