ABOUT THE BOOK:
This indispensable guide to the Medicinal Plants of Britain and Europe is part of the new Black's Nature Guide series. Over 350 species of plants are covered, each beautifully illustrated with detailed paintings and clear photographs. The images not only show you what the medicinal plant looks like in its habitat, but also focus in on specific features such as the leaves, flower head or berries to aid identification. Clear and concise information is provided, such as when the plant is in flower, the approximate petal size and preferred habitat.
