From the cover: “HERBS HAVE LONG BEEN PRIZED for their scents, medicinal properties and extraordinary seasoning qualities. There is an enormous diversity of herbs available to the general user, though the full extent of their uses is often unrealised. This new volume provides both an up-to-date guide to all the most popular herbs and their uses, and also a practical manual to home cultivation. Many herbs can be grown easily at home, both indoors and outdoors, in anything from small pots to large gardens.
The first section of this book explains all the traditional and modern gardening techniques needed to create a rewarding and successful herb garden at home. Practical step-by-step sequences demonstrate how to plan and design a herb garden, build pathways and clip hedges and topiary, as well as illustrating how to combine herbs for fragrance and healing, produce a perfect container garden, and how to grow and store herbs inside the home.
A-Z OF HERBS:
The second section of the book is a botanical A-Z encyclopaedia of herbs, detailing over 150 common and lesser-known varieties of plant, and providing growing tips as well as essential information on their medicinal, culinary and scented properties. Clear information about every herb listed provides instant recognition and identification, and notes on related species are given to ensure a full breadth of coverage.”
