First published in 1939, "Magic gardens" is the third book in Rosetta E. Clarkson's herb trilogy. It is laced with both lore and practical information, with numerous extracts and fifty woodcuts from the author's library of herbals and gardening books that date back to the 15th century. There is a chapter full of herbal medicine and magic - parsley will cure baldness, dill cures obesity, and plantain heals snake bites; a chapter on garden mazes; direction for making sweet sachets of lavender, rosemary, and mint; and a list of the author's twenty favourite culinary herbs and their uses.
