This blog is about garden herbs: their benefits, how to use, grow, harvest and preserve them. Here you can find articles on herbs used in Medieval times, and the Legend of the Four Thieves formulas. We also feature monthly articles such as From the Herb Basket and In the Herb Garden. You can find lots of practical tips on preparing herbal teas, using herbal remedies, buying and selecting herbs, gardening, recipes and more.
