Each chapter looks at the various ways of healing, how the use of scent, sound, water and touch can be used to create your garden of harmony. He starts with the basics - the earth itself and includes how color can create different moods. 'He covers the classic healing plants, like herbs and their uses and also goes into flowers, not just for their practical healing role, but also for their language.'

The photography included is just beautiful, giving us some wonderful ideas on how to achieve our garden of healng.
