From the cover: “A well-stocked garden is a must for any witch, for the strength of her magic potions depends upon the skilful use of the right plants or trees. Most of us know of the special properties of one or two plants, such as hemlock; the author, who has lectured on the folk-lore of plant-life for many years, tells us here — in lively and entertaining style — about a vast number of plants and trees and the legends and superstitions surrounding them. Magic, witchcraft, astrology, primitive medicine, ancient traditions still surviving at various festivals — all these are subjects which are discussed in this fascinating book on the plant-life of our gardens, fields and woods.”
