Fiann Ó Nualláin

The Holistic Gardener: First Aid from the Garden

'A little gem with tons of tips from the witty and knowledgeable Fiann Ó Nualláin.' — Darina Allen
A handy guide to quick and effective first-aid treatments for commonly occurring accidents and complaints, derived from garden, pantry and under-sink sources. From a thorn prick to heatstroke, from chapped hands to heart attack, from pesticide poisoning to wasp stings: all of these can be treated on-site with what you grow. The resource is on your doorstep: the plant beside you as you work or relax in the garden can answer the hive, ache or watery eye. It is written by a professional gardener with a lifetime of experience in accidents that can happen in the garden and how to cure/respond within the garden context using plants and items at hand in the garden. All the dots are joined; you won't need a book on herbs, a book on homemade remedy preparation and a garden plant reference — they are all combined in the first aid advice in this book.
