Handwritten, the Encyclopedia Pharmacognosy is a large tome of cracked leather, yellowed pages and fine, accurate little drawing detailing each herb with a fine, careful and steady hand. Above each plant's name is a medium-sized and detailed picture of it in full color and under it is a smaller version zoomed in.

"Herbs are any plants with leaves, seeds or flowers used for flavoring, food, medicine or perfume. There are several uses for it, either in general as is aforementioned or in botanical use where the herb is concidered to be a non-woody flowering plant composed of only grass-like plants and forbs.

Most herbs do best in full sunlight in a protected location and far away from other plants that might overshadow them. The plot doesn't need to be necessarily large, as many herbs can be kept relatively with care. Soil is also not a factor to worry for, as herbs will do well in many forms of ground. Once planted, they require no fertilizer and require very little water unless placed in direct sun. Apply straw much to protect the roofs of the herbs during winter.
Some more fragile prennial-type herbs such as the rosemary must be dug up in the fall****-potted and kept inside in slight sun.

Plant types;

Annual plants germinate, flower and diw in a year or season. Some seedless plants are also considered to be annuals. Annuals are usually grown outdors in the spring and summer and survive only for one growing season. Domesticated grains such as barley are a perfect example, along with tomatoes and peppers.

Perennials are plants that live far more than two years. This group is essentially comprised of small, flowering plants that grow, bloom only to die in autumn and winter and then return in the spring from their root-stock, rather than seeding themselves as annuals do.

Biennials are flowering plants that take two years to attain their full potential. For example, during the first year, the plant will grow leaves, stems and roots and enters a period of dormancy. Many of them require a cold treatment before they flower. Examples are parsley and carrots."

"List of herbs

Guam: Common and relatively inexpensive, the Guam bears faint healing properties on its own. Teas brewed with this particular herb may cure poison if mixed with harralander. It's perfect for upset stomachs when used in minor doses.

Harralander: Slightly less common than the Guam, the Harralander is renown for its ability to null minor poisons. When used alone, it gives a slight giddy effect that wakes one up. Side-effects include faint redness and warmth of skin when used.

Marrentill: One of the most common herbs that can be found and just as easy to grow, the marrentill herb soothes but not to point of grogginess unless directly ingested in a larger quantity. It is often burned so that the soothing effects may course through ambient air under form of smoke. It smells slightly sweet and is not recommended for eating.

Tarromin: Also common, the Tarromin is used for secondary ingredients in potions. On its own, it isn't much other than tasty.

Ranarr Weed: Not recommended for consumption, the Ranarr is expensive and sought after mostly for smoking. Easy to get addicted to, it's used to attempt to cure anxiety temporarily.

Toadflax: Used as an extensive cure for poison, Toadflax is a moderately common herb. What can heal can also kill and the Toadflax in large doses may poison just as well as it may null.

Spirit Weed: Rather straight forward, the Spirit Weed was discovered by followers of Guthix and it's used in religious rituals or personal use by individuals seeking acute hallucinations. Side-effects include acute paranoia and twitching.

Irit: The irit is found in dark areas and is rather common. It's easy to recognize due to its foul stench emitted. Fortunately, it also provides an immunity to poison with little side-affects asides for dizziness.

Wergali: The Wergali is a significantly rare herb sought after because it improves finger coordination and sharpens reflexes. Side-effects include twitching, jitters and slight redness of skin.

Avantoe: The Avantoe, as well, is one of the more sought after herbs due its effect of giving its consumer the impression that they're "unstoppable" because it's used for killing off pain. It's also used as compost and decomposes quickly. It causes nausea, itching and redness.

Kwuarm: Used in position when ground with certain items, the Kwuarm on its own for the same reasons as the Avantoe, though it's slightly rarer but bears only the side-effect of causing nausea.

Snapdragon: The Snapdragon is a fairly rare herb, bearing the main property of waking up its consumer for a long period of time. Depending on the quantity ingested, it may cause slight nausea.

Cadantine: Extensive pain-killer, the cadantine is somewhat of a rarity, expensive and mostly used for medical reasons where amputations and stitching are involved. Side-effects include drowsiness and grogginess.

Lantadyme: The Lantandyme is a strong painkiller. Causes irritation, redness and itching.
Dwarf Weed: Rather common, Dwarf Weed is smoked to produce a euphoric effect. Side-effects include hunger and slight jitters.

Torsol: The Torsol is perhaps one of the most dangerous and rare herbs out there. Causing euphoria, hallucinations and cutting off pain receptors, it's strongly recommended not to use it.

Fellstalk: Fellstalk resembles the Dwarf Weed in terms of effects, however being much rarer, it's also far more expensive. The euphoric effect lasts far longer if one consumes Fellstalk instead of Dwarf Weed.
