Growing and Using in the Home and Garden : Practical Inspirations for Natural Gifts, Recipes and Decorative DispalysBook - 2013
Lavender is one of the most beloved herbs in the garden. Its vivid shades from sun-soaked indigo to subtly tinged violet-white; its wonderfully heady and unmistakable aroma; its powers to soothe, to heal and delight all the senses - all contribute to its pre-eminent position in the herb garden. Tessa Evelegh explores the full possibilities of this prized and beloved herb within this inspirational book. Because lavender dries so well, retaining much of its vibrancy and all of its scent, it can be used all year round. Gorgeous ideas include a wire heart for the wardrobe, Shaker sachets for linen chests, a wall hanging, a lavender scrub mitt for the bath and an Elizabethan pomander. Illustrated with fabulous photographs, this stunning book is a unique evocation of one of our most beautiful plants: one that has been loved for centuries, carried and cultivated around the world, and prized for its unique properties and enchanting aromatic powers.
