Format: Paperback
This is exactly what you need if you have wanted to grow herbs indoors, in a garden window, a shelf where there is natural light or a small greenhouse. It is encouraging also, that you can have a window, even without necessarily direct sunlight. There are pencil drawings for ideas such as pots suspended in lettuce baskets or on a pebble tray.
Lists are done of the herbs, their uses and history and how to plant them. Included is; planning, basic culture, herbs to grow for flavor, fragrance and finally a section with recipes. An index is incorporated too. The binding on the book is not very good and since it has not been reprinted expect to have to glue it, if you are using this as a reference, but it seems to be the only one specializing in indoor growing.

There is no information on sprouts, which is sometimes included in with herbal growing. It should have included how and when to harvest, but for the growing and propagating it can't be beat.

Pretty sure you could find something like this in the back of your local library. The pages even look old! Look elsewhere if you want pics of herbs (rather than drawings).
