This is one of the all-time classic gardening bestsellers with over 350 varieties of herb to grow and over 200 delicious and inventive recipes. It is a spread-by-spread reference work bringing together all aspects of an individual herb – history and folklore, species to grow and cosmetic, medicinal and culinary uses. Chapters on propagation, harvesting and making herb oils are complemented with ideas for 10 different designs for herb gardens and a yearly calendar. Accurate colour photography means that identification for the reader is simple as well as making the book a glorious companion – the only book on the subject the reader will ever need.
