Very helpful information in this book

This is the audiobook you need if you are just starting started with medicinal plants. It is revitalizing since it concentrates on well-known botanicals. Starting projects is made extremely simple by the organization, and the material is simple to comprehend while yet being comprehensive enough for someone who is more experienced with herbs.

Great recommendations!

I literally just bought herb starters on a whim, and then didn’t really know what to do with them! 🤦🏻‍♀️ I looked around and found this book, hoping it’d give me at least a few useful tidbits. It gave me TONS! I feel pretty confident with both indoor and outdoor propagation, and know exactly what to plant in my weird yard that’s half shady and half sunny. Thanks!

Helpful information.

I really liked this audiobook. I found it helpful for identifying 20 common Herbs. I was interested in growing my own herbs, syrups, and oils. I’m excited to try the recipes out! The author did a good job.

Just perfect.

If you are just getting started with medicinal herbs, this is the audiobook you want. It focuses on familiar herbs which makes it refreshing. The way it's organized makes it very easy to get started with projects and the information is easy to understand yet in-depth enough for someone who is more familiar with herbs.

Really great info.

I received this book as a gift since I have recently begun growing my own herbs. The basic info about the herbs is interesting and helpful but the recipes are fantastic. Usually, cookbook recipes are hit or miss but every recipe I've tried was good and most exceptionally so. I enjoyed listening very much.
