There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The author also does not give any explanation for why she chose the first and second groups of 32 herbs. Very minimal information as to their usage is given in each herb's listing (for example, some herbs are described simply as "for flavor in the kitchen" or "for medicinal uses"), making it difficult for a beginner to determine just how essential a given herb is. Depending on whether your interest in herbs is culinary, medicinal, for dyeing, or for other purposes, you might need to consult other sources to decide just what to plant for your needs.
To reiterate, except for a lack of sample garden plans, the information on growing, propagating, and harvesting herbs is outstanding. There are helpful sections on growing herbs for profit and examples of herbal products to sell as well. For usages, as well as for color illustrations, you will need an additional reference.
