The volume is described as "...An extensive grimorium of wortcunning, or plant-magic, the Pleasure Garden treats of the Secret Knowledge of Trees and Herbs as delivered by the Fallen Angels unto Man. The book’s principal concerns are the sorcery and gnosis of the Greenwood. The work encompasses magical practices, formulae, and mystical exegesis, all treating the respective arcana of plant genii. The whole is a textual reification of occult herbalism within the Sabbatic Craft Tradition, and the greater ambit of Witch-lore."
