(3 customer reviews)

$29.95

“Growing Plant Medicine, Vol. 2” completes the 2-volume set.

The book consists of:

The further 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.  Those of you who have Vol. 1 will want Vol. 2, and those of you who do not have Vol. 1, will want to buy that, too!  Vol. 2 also includes  a chapter on medicinal trees as well as 2 indexes:  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.

    Why you really want this book

    Pamela (verified owner)

    I want to start with the fact that Richo Cech has been growing medicinal seeds for at least 40 years. His knowledge is unparalleled. This book lets you take advantage of all the plant wisdom he has gained over time. Unlike any other plant book I have found, this is arranged by plant families. The reason this is so very helpful is that I have come across a plant which is obviously in the mint family due to its stem, yet have not known which species it was. Also, I am learning more about which plants belong to which family. That has made identification easier especially when you have a reference organized in this manner. Next, the part I have found most valuable is the description of the individual plants. Each monograph begins with a detailed description of the plant. To give you a taste of the comprehensive info included you will find the following: needed sunlight, growing zone, pollination needs, germination and seed production and much more. Furthermore, the author included information on how the plant is used and its properties, i,e. is it warming, cooling, etc. Next there are facts on cultivation. Is it a perennial or annual; how do I propagate the seed? Lastly, I appreciate having instructions on what parts of the plants are used to make teas, tinctures, tincture ratios, and cautions.
    There is no other book on the market that I have found (and I own a library of books) that has all the information you would ever need to successfully grow medicinal plants, propagate them and turn them into medicine compiled into one location.

    I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you put into creating volume 2 of growing medicinal herbs. I greatly appreciate having a book with information in it that I know I can trust written by people who are actually growing plants.
    The book is beautiful!

    I just received my signed copy in the mail today with my Ayurvedic Seed Collection. I have Volume 1 and am thrilled to have the pair for learning and future reference.

    First thing I looked up was the Bodhi tree. Great information that I’m looking forward to implementing.

    Please, I am asking if the plants covered in the “At Risk…” book will be covered in Vol II of “Growing Plant Medicine?” (this is my 2nd time submitting the question and my cart is ready to check out.) Thanks

      Greetings and thanks for writing! Some of the herbs in “At Risk” are indeed covered in Vol 2. The thing about “at-risk” is that is is more in-depth about only 21 plants. Vol 2 has more the approach of an herbal that covers hundereds of species. The last time I answered this question I gave a rundown of which plants in At-Risk are not covered in Vol 2. If you request it, I’ll figure out that list again, All the best, richo
