Step into the world of our least-admired botanical companions, peel back the layers of prejudice, and discover the finer side of the plants we call weeds.  An astonishing number are either edible or medicinal, and have deep and sometimes bizarre connections to human history.

But how do you distinguish a tasty sandwich-filler from its dangerous look-alike?

Which of these garden familiars is the most nutritious vegetable ever tested by the US Dept of Agriculture?

How do you cook with delicious nettles without fear of being stung?

This book reveals all this and more, and will forever change your concept of where to go looking for lunch.

  • Full colour photos and botanical illustrations
  • Detailed edibility and medicinal notes on our favourite 20 weeds, plus another 14 short weed profiles
  • Delicious and easy recipes
  • Remarkable tales from history and folklore!
