About the author

Hilda Leyel

10 books2 followers
Hilda Wauton, who wrote under the name Mrs. C. F. Leyel, was an expert on herbalism and founded the Society of Herbalists (later the Herb Society) in England in 1927, as well as a chain of herbalist stores called the "Culpeper Shops".
While still young, she developed a precocious interest in herbs and flowers and after leaving school studied medicine. She worked briefly with Frank Benson, who was an actor-manager, and in 1900 married Carl Frederick Leyel, a theatrical manager with whom she had two sons.
She was a fellow of the Royal Institution, and an officer of l'Academie Francaise.
