People now use herbs in their cooking on an everyday basis and there's nothing nicer than being able to go out into your garden, snip some fresh herbs and put them straight into the pot. The beauty of a herb garden is that it does not have to be big - it can be part of a larger garden or it can merely be a windowbox. This book tells you what herbs are, how to use them and discusses in detail how to plan a herb garden, including a cartwheel garden, a paved herb garden, corners and narrow borders and containers. There is valuable information on buying, planting, increasing and looking after herbs, as well as an informative A - Z herb identifier.
