In Celebration of Fynbos Book

A treasure trove of practical information and exquisite photography. It showcases 50 plants from the fynbos kingdom, focusing on how to use them in gardening, culinary, medicinal, healing and decorative ways. A double-page spread is dedicated to each flower and, while the emphasis remains on gardening, the practical information, ranging from how to make sundowners and iced tea to fabric dye and medicinal potions, is extremely useful. Recommended by librarians for school projects.
