Not all of us are into formal gardening. A good solution is to make a wildlife garden, with a wild flower meadow and patches of important food plants for wildlife. So you end up with a garden full of weeds and other wild plants. Can you make home remedies from such unpromising material? Yes, you can.
Natural remedies go back into antiquity, and if you think about it, there wasn't the range of plants available which we now expect to find. None of the culinary herbs we all know and love - most of them were taken to the UK by the Romans some 2000 years ago, brought to the New World with the Pilgrim Fathers in the 1600s.
It's believed that even many common weeds originated with the Roman Empire, so now you know who to blame! But they didn't carry these plants with them for no reason. They had a purpose - and that purpose was for use as natural cures for common ailments, most of which we still suffer from today.
"Home Remedies from Weeds and Wild Flowers" gives you the information you need about many usually overlooked weeds and wildflowers; how to grow them, which parts to harvest and when, which remedies to make with them and what to use them for.
