The rustle of the wind in the bamboo; the calming fragrance of blooming lilacs… for many of us, the garden symbolizes peace, refreshment, a retreat where we can reestablish our link with the natural world.
The Healing Garden shows you how to plan and create your own natural haven and rediscover the power of plants to heal, soothe, and stimulate both the body and soul. Taking lessons from the medieval monastery gardens and medicinal gardens of the seventeenth century, it shows how to design your own garden and select, grow, and care for plants with your complete well-being in mind.
Its beautiful, full-color photographs and gentle advice on natural remedies for ailments–from cold and flu to the work-a-day blues–will inspire you to use and enjoy your garden as an antidote to the stresses of modern life.
