As a gardener who owns a number of books about herbs from the US and England, I can be picky when it comes to adding something new to my collection. But after reading Judy Lowe's Herbs! Creative Herb Garden Themes and Projects, I immediately knew it was going to become one of my favorites.

Long-time garden writer and editor Lowe has crafted a book that is instructive for beginners (even kids) and an inspiration for more advanced gardeners. Readers can learn about garden design, types of herb gardens and how to best use these appealing plants in the landscape. She also profiles approximately 50 herb favorites.

Of course, most good books on the subject will include plant profiles and tips for successful growing. This book, however, takes herb gardening to a new level with its imaginative ideas for creating more than four-dozen theme gardens ranging from Biblical and Medicinal gardens to one showcasing herbs mentioned in the writings of Shakespeare.

Lowe has sprinkled fun ways to use and enjoy herbs throughout the various theme garden chapters. There are even recipes! The Pizza and Grilling gardens are two of my particular favorites.

If you enjoy making herbal teas, bath sachets, potpourri gifts or homemade pickles, there are garden design plans here for you, too. If you'd like to jumpstart your child's interest in cultivating plants, the Peter Rabbit Garden is the perfect place to begin. In short, there is something tasty for everyone in Herbs!

From attracting butterflies to the potential pitfalls of indoor herb gardening, Judy Lowe has written an informative, engaging and beautifully illustrated book both serious gardeners and wannabes will love.

The fragrance of herbs is in the air! This book is full of helpful tips about how to grow and care for herbs. It also contains useful information on how to grow herb garden by various themes (for kids, for making pizza, for barbecuing, etc.). Further, it overviews projects and crafts you can make with herbs.

Format: Paperback
Some books make you laugh, some books make you cry, and some books want you to carry them around with you. Judy Lowe's latest book, Herbs! is a carry-around-with-you book. Not only will you learn where to plant that new herb you are going to try, you will see a photo and can look it up to see if it will become a thug if let loose in your garden.

Which herbs are best propagated by cuttings? Judy supplies a list. Which herbs did Shakespeare mention? Which herbs are mentioned in the bible? There are lists.

The book is more than easy to use lists, though. So much more. There is an extensive accounting of herbs and their growing requirements. There are also wonderful little tidbits of information next to the herb photographs. Did you know, "Because the odor of feverfew is said to repel bees, it's usually not planted near plants, such as tomatoes, that need bees for pollination." It's in Herbs! Creative Garden Themes and Projects.

There is a section on fragrance. For those who spend their days indoors and visit their gardens in the evening, there is a piece on mixing night-blooming flowers with your herbal garden. Do you only have a patio or small deck? Check out the herbs suited to growing in containers. One of my favorites is the magical garden listing, A Harry Potter Herb Garden, herbs that might be at home at Hogwarts. Two on the list are fennel to ward off witches and horseradish to ensure prosperity, great fun for children (and adults who want to impress them.)

I have always loved pineapple sage (Salvia elegans) in my flower border. The leaves are luscious to crush as I walk along the patch. It is also a late bloomer, sending up deep scarlet red flower spikes in late fall when there is not much going on in the flower beds.
