The most complete and concise book of herbs on the market. ( )
  Mootastic1 | Jan 15, 2016 |
Informative and entertaining, this encyclopedia has already helped me improve my black thumb to more of a yellowish hue. Practical information such as ideal planting times and soil conditions fill sidebars, while the main pages are devoted to beautiful (and useful) illustrations and explanations of the history/uses/growing conditions of each herb. So far its information helped me save some flagging basil and lavender plants, and grow dill and sage from seed. ( )

No garden library is complete without this book! ( )

A fantastic, thorough reference on using herbs for a variety of purposes. ( )
  herebedragons | Feb 9, 2007 |
Excellent resource, covers so many different herbs from so many angles. This will probably be my main reference because its the best I've read so far and covers everything I could possibly need to know. ( )

ACONITE
 Aconitum Napellus  Rannunculaceae
The violet-blue, hooded flower of aconite holds great beauty for the garden, but too, that hood shrouds a poison of great power.
