Brother Cadfael, the much-loved medieval sleuth created by Ellis Peters, is depicted in the "Chronicles" as an enthusiastic gardener and herbalist, often excusing himself from his daily offices to tend the abbey gardens or work in his herbarium. He is also renowned for his great knowledge of plants, especially the exotic varieties he bought back to England from his travels throughout the Christian and Muslim worlds to raise and perfect in his own garden in Shrewsbury. This book recreates Brother Cadfael's herbal kingdom. It details in alphabetical order all the plants and herbs mentioned in the "Chronicles", and offers descriptions of their traditional uses in medieval times.
