Default Re: What Garden BOOKS do You Like ???

That's a glowing book review Emily! Makes me want to buy one and I am not even close to Florida weather!!!

Sherry, I can remember when the gardening magazines were that cheap. Here is my most recent one. I bought it about three weeks ago. I am only about 1/4 in to it, right now.

Thumbs up Re: What Garden BOOKS do You Like ???

Oh that first one (Magic & Medicine of Plants) looks like a real good one, Janan. What kinds of plants does it discuss?

Default Re: What Garden BOOKS do You Like ???

I just happen to have it right here!

Goose barnacle Tree
Tartarian Lamb Tree
Witch's Berry (Beladonna)
Datura Metel
Mandrake root
Papyrus
Sweet Marjorum
Chrysanthemum
Narcissus
Roses
Garlic
Sunflowers
Verbena

Here's a quote from the book:

Delphi, where a priestess foretold the future in a trance, a state she reputedly attained by breathing the hallucinogenic smoke of smoldering secret herbs.

These are just a few as I turned the pages. I just bought the book and have only read the forward!
