Penny Black's Book of Potpourri and Gail Duff's Natural Fragrances: Outdoor Scents for Indoor Uses (both LJ 8/89) focused on potpourri "recipes"; this book concentrates on describing the plants best suited for use in potpourri, as illustrated in several seasonal recipes. The heart of the book is the chapters on the growing and harvesting of herbs, annuals, roses, perennials, bulbs, and shrubs for use in fragrant potpourri. Planning a potpourri garden, selecting the plants for their fragrance and color when dried, and harvesting and drying techniques (including use of a microwave for drying!) are thoroughly covered. The book concludes with mail-order sources for plants and ingredients such as essential oils and fixatives. Over 75 color photographs are included.
