The complete book of herbs; a practical guide to growing and using herbs

Its not solely medicinal herbs, its got pages for herbal remedies, paper making, dyes, pretty all inclusive, as well as growing techniques and plots (I think there are some in there for cooking too..)

the rainforest one is only medicinal plants though, some may be tough to get but there are quite a few useful plants in there

is that using herbs for cooking or for herbal remedies? I am looking for herbal remedies....
Have you tried De Materia Medica?

I find this to be an interesting read. It's my favorite source for herbal remedies, along with Maude Grieve's A Modern Herbal and Rodale's Encyclopedia of Herbs.

I've heard others sing the praises of the Encyclopedia of Herbs.

Personally, I'll be checking all of these out. I would like to learn more about herbs also.

Thanks to everyone for the titles you've suggested! :)

You might take a look at Nerys Perchon's "The Essential Natural Health Bible" It is excellent!

Lesley Bremness: The Complete Book of Herbs - a practical guide to growing and using herbs.
288 pages, paperback, 11.60 x 7.66". Penguin Studio, Sep 1994. ISBN 0140238026. Listprice USD 22.
A good allround book for the beginner, it includes one-page articles on 100+ herbs, and a wide variety of uses for them (culinary and medicinal uses, cleaning, beauty, etc.). There's also a section on how to grow herbs. Lots of clear plant and how-to color pictures.
