Hedgerow News

Posted on by royvickery |

Hedgerow News is a magazine, published at least twice a year, which explores ‘traditional herbal medicines and other plant and health related information’, focussing on plants easily grown in the United Kingdom. To date three issues have been produced. Plants discussed include meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria), wormwood (Artemisa absinthium) and horsetail (Equisetum). The first two issues are available free on; other issues are available as pdfs at £1 each, or as printed copies at £3 each. Contact
