Customer Reviews:

  • "Must Have" for aspiring herb growers
    Great resource book. Covers all of the basics in clear, simple instructions. ...more info
    This is a great book for a beginning herb gardener. The first half of the book is a general overview of gardening techniques, designs, and uses for herbs. The second half gives specific information on growing and using many herbs. This has been extraordinarily helpful to me as background and reference for me.

    However, it is pretty basic and only covers the most commonly used herbs, so I'm not sure that advanced herb gardeners would get much out of this....more info
  • A complete herbal reference book!

    I really like this book. It is very easy to follow and has a little bit of everything you need to know packed into the book. I bought it for the outside herb garden design, but I changed my mind. I am trying a kitchen garden, growing the herbs inside in containers. If you are new to herb gardening, this is the perfect book. And in my opinion, it is the only book you will need. I want to use the fragrant herbs for sachet crafts and dry some herbs for cooking. These will be terrific gifts for my DIL because she buys and uses a lot of herbs for cooking and will never have the time to grown them. You will never put this book away. There are so many possibilities of what to do with herbs. ...more info

    The book is full of great details on everything you could think of related to herb gardening. From selecting a garden location to preparing the soil to selecting the herbs to harvesting and preserving, it's all covered. At times there are too many details, but it's a great book for a beginner or experienced gardener.

  • in love with herbs
    I adore this book! Wow! It has all the things I wanted!
    - it's organic
    - it very thorougly covers many herbs in different formats, so you know everything from what bugs they attract or repel, how tall they grow, and what zone they can be grown in
    - common uses for them: I discovered many herbs I thought were inedible plants that are indeed herbs
    - easy to use tables

    I wasn't too hip on all the cosmetic and craft uses - I'd rather eat them, but they're short and may come in handy. I know the rest of the book sure will!...more info
  • Herb Growing for the Clueless
    While the book doesn't cover as many herbs as I had hoped, it gets to all the major ones. More importantly, the information provided is thorough and presented in a non-overwhelming, easy-to-read way. Each page tells the reader how easy the plant is to grow, whether it can be grown in a container, what zone it grows best in, how to harvest, propagate, and store the herb, and all sorts of other pertinent info.

    The first portion of the book covers planning one's garden, planting techniques and gives instructions for several methods for using herbs (flavored oils, teas, etc.). There are plenty of useful charts throughout which make this a great quick reference guide.

    The author safely shies away from giving too much information on medicinal uses for the herbs, so those looking for information and instructions regarding herbal remedies should definitely purchase another book in addition to this one....more info
