Growing Plant Medicine Set — Vols 1 and 2, complete.

The set consists of:

Vol 1:  The adventures of the Cech Family practicing self-sufficiency in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon.  Theory and practice of natural gardening techniques in the garden of diversity.  How to grow, harvest and use a vast array of medicinal herbs. Seed saving.  Bioregional medicinal plant recommendations, garden plans and materia medica.  Arranged in plant families by way of kinship and common name.  Extensive index.  Families A through H. 354 pages, soft-bound.

Vol 2:  More adventures of the Cech family, this time camping in the roughshod Red Buttes wilderness.  The usual combination of cuteness, herbs, nature, adventure, bats and robots.  The core of the book consists of herbal monographs arranged by plant families I  through Z, thereby completing the 2 volume set.  Vol. 2 also includes  a chapter on medicinal trees as well as 2 charts:  1) on seeds per gram of 586 different medicinal plants and 2) on the dry down (how many pounds of fresh herb must be picked to produce 1 pound of dried herb)  for 200 botanicals.  This is a personal book with stories and poems derived from a life lived among the herbs, including our archaeological wanderings, African adventures and farming in Southern Oregon.  Extensively indexed. 256 pages, soft-bound.

Realistically illustrated by Sena Cech, with line drawings of the actual plants, flowers, seeds and seedlings.

      Hi Tina, Thanks for your thoughtful question. This is an extensive herbal that covers herbs for all zones. The growing techniques and the garden designs are applicable for growers in borth the tropics and the cold zones. The plant monographs include zone designations that will help you choose and utilize plants and trees that will do well for you in your area. The native distributions and ideal growing conditions are given for each botanical, and this too helps in choosing the plants and trees that will do best for you. Cheerio! richo

  2. Question

    Michael

    Should one begin with your book, Making Plant Medicine”, or these? While I’m sure they each have their individual benefit; where should one begin?

      Hi Michael, If you want to make tinctures and learn herbal medicine, i would suggest “Making Plant Medicine.” If you want to learn more about plants, design gardens, learn how to grow and harvest medicinals, then gut vols 1 and 2. Where do they cover the same ground? Medicinal uses. Richo

      Hi Corrina,
      Thanks for contacting. Plants are listed by family and common name. There is an extensiuve Latin cross-reference that will bring you right to the appropriate monograph. All the best, Richo
