A Garden of Herbs - Rohde, E., S. Originally published in the 1900s, this book has been written primarily as a guide for those wishing to create an old-fashioned herb garden, and who want to know how to use these herbs as our great-grandmothers did. A herb garden can be created in the smallest of spaces and herbs offer a wide variety of uses. There are on average about seven hundred different remedies for most of the common ailments. This book deals with the few well-known English wild and garden herbs which everyone can grow and use. Also included are some curious and fun recipes, such as "Thyme - to enable one to see the Fairies," and some lovely detailed diagrams of 'knots', or plans of lay-out, for your herb garden. Contents Include: - Of Herb Gardens - Knots for the Housewife's Garden - Of Sunday Herbs - Of Sallets - Herb Pottages - Herb Puddings - Herb Drinks and Homemade Wines - Additional Receipts - Of Picking and Drying of Herbs - Of Sweet Scents
