It's been my main resource for trying to learn the scientific names of
common plants. I'll pass on growing the Poison Ivy and Deadly Nightshade
a word to the wise novice gardener or holistic practitioner... Plants
portrayed as used for medicinal purposes in the 19th century may have
been found to be toxic or problemmatic health-wise over the years.
Always research the common-day uses or abuses of plant medicines before
growing, using or recommending any botanical for ingestion. Researching
cautions and side effects is almost mandatory for your safety. Gardeners
who are also pet owners should always be aware of toxicity of plants to
pets who might ingest them. Self-dosing with botanicals is not wise,
unless you're an expert. As a life-long gardener and practical student
of herbalism, I know that home-grown medicines will have different
concentrations of medicine in different parts of the plants, and crops
from different seasons are almost definitely differing in strength.
Fresh vs. dried use of plants is also a consideration in potency. Also
consider modern-day medications not jiving when mixed with the herbal
drug. Dosing amounts and potential side effects are best left to the
opinions of researchers and experts. Many medical plants, like Chamomile
and Valerian have been used safely for centuries. Just be smart, and
research it before using.
The collection contains more of the most commonly
known, ornamental, and popular garden and wild plants used in healing
and cooking Almost all of these illustrations include the scientific
botanical name of the plants on the artwork. I find these images much
nicer and more colorful to look at than many centuries old botanical
