Growing Plant Medicine, Vol. 1 is the much-expanded version of the original The Medicinal Herb Grower.

The book consists of:

The theory and practice of natural garden techniques are newly augmented with bioregional medicinal plant recommendations, garden plans, and materia medica. Arranged by plant families, alphabetically by kinship and common name. Families A through H. The rest of the alphabet will be left to Volume 2, which is in production. This is a personal book filled with ruminations on gardening and herbalism coming from a lifetime of observing, growing, and advocating for medicinal herbs. I hope the information is helpful and that you enjoy the style.

Realistically illustrated by Sena Cech, with line drawings of the actual plants, flowers, seeds, seedlings, mice, and more.

“As for the way of herbalism, my experience is that discovering what the herbs are used for is mighty useful. How much better still when they teach me. . . what I am good for.” –Richo Cech

More than plant medicine

There is a lot of info other than medicine plants but it is interesting.
