I picked this book up for research. It’s over 600 pages of illustrations, generally 1-2 pages per plant, with some being up to 5 or so. The main thing I was looking for was usage of herbs, but it covers a variety of topics (cultivation, growing, plant varities and more) in bite-size chunks of information. It even has some recipes. The pictures are great if you plan on describing them without actually mentioning the name, a way of subtly revealing information without revelaing what it is. A bit of obfiscation to throw the reader off while remaining within the Galactic Guidelines of Narative Practice. Had to throw a little H2G@ humor in. For example, should the protagonist pick a flowering herb that turns out to be deadly or the very thing his lady fair is allergic to.
