    Informative and fun

    Being new to growing herbs, the stories gave a much needed brake from information overload. They also gave a more intimate understanding to the plants. I especially enjoyed the relation of cats to hobos 😄

      Hello Breanna, Thank you, this is old “James Harriot” writing of mine that got spiffed up and reissued. The plants that are covered are some of the best in Western herbalism. Richo

    Is there much overlap with medicinal herb grower and making plant medicine? I have, and love, both of those books.

      Hello Han, Sorry, at first I thought you were talking about “growing at risk.” “Growing your garden pharmacy” is a pamphlet, not a book. It has stories, poetry and quite a nice rundown on cultivation of the main herbs. It isn’t the same as anything else I’ve written. Richo
