Grow Your Own Drugs 2

I'm delighted to see that Grow Your Own Drugs, the BBC series about making your own herbal potions and remedies, is returning to television this Tuesday at 8pm on BBC2.

The first series was shown in spring 2009. In it, presenter James Wong demonstrated how to make easy remedies for common ailments from plants and herbs that you can easily grow in your garden. He also tested them on members of the public and showed the results - which were often very good.

In first episode of the new series, James will show how to make an angelica stomach soother for indigestion, an anti-dandruff hair oil and an insecticidal wormwood-and-sage clothes-moth repellent.

A book based on the first series, called Grow Your Own Drugs: Easy Recipes for Natural Remedies and Beauty Treats is available from Amazon, as is another book called Grow Your Own Drugs: A Year with James Wong. The first series of Grow Your Own Drugs is also available as a DVD: Grow Your Own Drugs [DVD] [2009]
