Kitser - If you want to pursue this apothecary's garden idea, a useful reference book is 'Health from God's Garden' by Maria Treben - ISBN 0-7225-1476-X.

It's an English translation of her original German, published in 1987 by Thorson's Publishing Group, and includes things like poultices, ointments and baths, in addition to medicinal items taken internally. It may help you plant a selection of the more useful ones?

I must look that up, Blowin. The book that inspired me is 'Brother Cadfael's Herb Garden'. Not a 'how to' book as such, but worth a read.

As well as a couple of Pharmacists in the family, we had a herbalist. He was married to a cousin of the guy who grew hydrangeas. His wife, my 'Auntie' Margery was the biggest influence of my gardening life. They had an Arts and Crafts cottage set in an acre or so of gardens. My Apothecary's garden is more a tribute to her.

Well, if you're into that sort of thing, Sue, you may like 'Wild Foods' by Avril Rodway - ISBN 1-85361-003-8. Plants you can eat, plus recipes.
