5.0 out of 5 stars --I never get tired of reading this book--, May 14, 2002
This review is from: The Complete Book of Herbs: A Practical Guide to Growing and Using Herbs (Paperback)
Collecting herbal books has been a hobby of mine for several years, and I own about 20 books on the subject. This particular book was a gift from my son and I have to say it's one of my favorite books about herbs. Because this is an English book, you'll have to take your climate into consideration with some of the suggested plantings.
THE COMPLETE BOOK OF HERBS has gorgeous photographs and illustrations. In the Herbal Index section there are over 60 different plants pictured. Each illustration shows the entire plant with close up pictures of the seeds, flowers and often the root when it's usable. The section on Herbs in the Garden offers different designs with suggestions of which plants are complimentary partners. One interesting picture that I particularly liked in this section was of a moonlight garden. Beautiful and serene!
There are also sections on: growing & harvesting, herbal healing, beauty care, and cooking with herbs. The recipes are pretty diverse. The foods look so good that you'll want to try them all. I especially enjoyed the Oregano Tomatoes; Garden Herb Omelette; Melon, Tomato & Mint Salad and the Lemon Balm Cheesecake. All delicious!
If you just want one book on herbs, this beautiful and concise book is it!
