BLEMISHES Witch Hazel Gel 200 g witch hazel twigs and (preferably young) leaves (see Resources on page 218) 2 cups (500 ml) hot water 6 packets vegetable gelatin 2 tbsp vodka 1. Place the witch hazel in a pan with the hot water. Over a gentle heat, slowly reduce mixture to a third of its volume until it reaches about 2/3 cup of liquid (this will take about 1 hour). 2. Line a sieve with cheesecloth, then strain the liquid into a mixing bowl. Add the gelatin, stirring to dissolve. Set aside to cool. 3. Once cool, add the vodka and stir well. Pour the gel into a wide-mouthed jar. COLIC Chamomile Syrup 4 handfuls (approx 40 g) German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) flowerheads 4 cups (900 ml) water 2 1/4 cups (450g) sugar or 1 cup (340g) honey 1. In a pan, put the chamomile in the water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low, then cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for about 20 minutes. 2. Reduce the mixture to 3/4 cup (approx 200 ml) by simmering very slowly with the lid off for an additional 20 minutes. 3. Add the sugar and simmer for a few more minutes, stirring until the mixture looks like syrup. Be careful not to boil rapidly; allow it to bubble just a little. 4. Strain through a mesh sieve and then pour it into a sterilized bottle. Seal with a cork; if the syrup ferments, the bottle might explode. USE For a child, 1 tsp, 3 to 6 times a day.

This is a wonderful guide to growing edible plants in containers. It begins with general information about growing crops in containers, like soil types, common pests, types of containers. Next, it offers 50 different sample arrangements of crops in pots to try at home. Each arrangement is well illustrated and includes a list of ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and a quick recipe that uses the crops in the arrangement. Finally the book gives growing tips for many common container crops.

This is just the sort of book that I have been looking for because it offers such a comprehensive guide to container crops. I found the information to be very useful and the directions easy to follow. I enjoyed seeing different arrangements of crops and have gotten several new ideas from this book. I also thought the recipes were a nice touch and a fun project. Overall, I am extremely happy with this book and I believe that I will find it useful for many planting years to come. ( )
