South Africa's herb expert, Margaret Roberts, has written the definitive lavender book for South Africa, she tells you everything you need to know about growing this aromatic herb, classifying the surprising number of different varieties and using lavender in a multitude of ways. There is a section of recipes using this fragrant herb, all of which have been tried and tested by Margaret Roberts herself. Another section deals with the cosmetic uses of lavender and there is also a detailed portion of the chapter describing medicinal uses for this herb. Margaret Roberts also gives you wonderful ideas on using lavender in the home and a variety of interesting gifts to make. If you're into herbs, this book is a must for your home library.
