    I’ve always been interested in herbs but I have very little gardening experience. This book will walk you though all the steps you need to take in order to grow your own herbs. I purchased this book along with another which I’ve never even opened because this book is so good. Talk about user friendly, the charts are simple and the photos are inspiring. You’ll find information on planting, preparing, growing and caring for herbs. Also there’s a whole section on enjoying your herbs with crafts and cooking. The section I’ve found most useful is the herb directory. This is the only book you need to get started.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    Here is what one needs to grow herbs — soil conditioning, pests, fertilizing, watering — all of them done organically.

    What I find really attractive is a chart on each of the fifty herbs discussed showing its Attention Required, Freindly to bugs, Ornamental quality, Container Growing, Yield, Easy to Grow.

    There is also great section on propogation, using in cooking and beauty, dried arrangements, etc.

    Done in color with great drawings, this is informative book, each page is loaded with info.

    I wish I’d had this book years ago when I first started growing herbs. It would have saved me lots of ‘trial and error’ experimenting with my herb garden. This informative, thorough guide is good reading for the beginner as well as the expert herb gardener. There are lists of which herbs love shade and which love full sun; lists of what kind of soil each herb prefers; lists of fragrant herbs and culinary herbs. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to start an herb garden or learn more about growing and using herbs, earth’s magical gifts to us!
