Set around the seasons, From Mother to Daughter shares the household secrets that in the past were second nature to our grandmothers. As the year unfolds, there are hints, tips and advice on everything from spring cleaning to planting seeds and making fresh cheese. In summer, the home and garden can be enriched with floral and edible bounty, from fragrant rose petal hand cream and luxurious bath milks to delicious sliced peach jam and cherry brandy. Autumn brings notes on preserving, pickling and drying, plus tips on building compost heaps and preparing bulbs for indoor flowering. For winter there are soothing remedies for coughs and colds, recipes for warming drinks and steamed puddings, as well as instructions on how to make homely knitted blankets and festive decorations.
