Booklist Review

Platt begins with data on this popular herb's history and its many species and varieties. She explains the plant's uses (aromatic, medicinal, cleansing, and flavoring) and how to grow, harvest, and dry it. She tells how to create a variety of gardens suitable for growing lavender and how to use it as topiary and bonsai. Platt gives tips on pest and disease control, pruning, propagating, and taking cuttings. She also includes instructions on lavender projects, such as garlands, bundles, wreaths, and potpourris. There are six recipes using the herb and 66 color photographs. (Reviewed March 15, 1999)0811728498George Cohen
