Herbs sets a new standard of excellence for illustrated gardening books.

Chapters are devoted to: Selecting and Growing Herbs, Soil, Perennial Kitchen Herbs, Thyme, Alliums, Herbs to Blend and Brew, Herbs for Fragrance, Growing Herbs Indoors, Cooking with Fresh Herbs and Gathering Wild Herbs. A chapter is devoted to herbs with seeds such as caraway, chives, coriander, cress, mustard and poppy and another to sages for seasoning and teas as well as for adding color to the flowerbed.

This volume, as beautiful as it is useful, combines the wisdom of two longtime gardeners to make Herbs, The Complete Gardener's Guide, a delightful and essential addition to any gardener's library.
