Review

"Gardeners, cooks and craftspeople will certainly enjoy this comprehensive guide to creating gardens and cultivating herbs." -- Country Decorating Ideas

"It's the best book on the subject for the material it covers from gardening to cooking and crafts." -- Amalie Adler Ascher, The Baltimore Sun

From the Back Cover

Herbs are treasures indeed! The rich world of herbs blooms with exciting possibilities, and in Herbal Treasures that world is lovingly and thoroughly explored by author Phyllis Shaudys and many of her colleagues actively involved with herbs.

-- For the gardener, Shaudys gives advice on how to make the most of the heady aromas, unique design potential, and ease of care that make herbs the almost perfect garden plant.

-- For the cook, she shows how subtle and pungent, healthful herbs transform ordinary food into gourmet fare.

-- For the craftsperson, the author shares an array of alluring projects, from dainty, sweet-smelling sachets and baskets for the bed and bath, to lavish swags and wreaths to adorn a welcoming entryway.

As in Shaudys's highly acclaimed book, The Pleasure of Herbs, each chapter presents a variety of projects keyed to a different month, so that one can follow the book through the year to find inspiring ideas for gardens, kitchens, decorating, and gifts appropriate to the season.

Format: Paperback
So much to do so little time. This is one of the most inspiring herb books ever written. The basic idea of Herbal Treasures is to provide activities centered around both the garden and the time of year. Each month is given its own chapter that is chock full of a myriad of suggestions for herbally fun things to do for that month. For instance, June is for brides. Ms. Shaudy's provides everything from wedding gardens to wedding punch, all laced with the rich tradition of herbs. There are so many crafts and recipes that it takes more than a year for most of us to do them all. Herbal Treasures is a wonderful warm book you won't want to put down. Herbal Treasures is the continuation of Ms. Shaudy's previous work The Pleasure of Herbs. The Pleasure of Herbs is also a month to month compendium overflowing with creative herbal excitement.

This book is a treasure and lives up to it's name.
I have tried many of the recipes that are included in this book and all of them have been easy to prepare and fun. The rose petal jelly was very easy and was a big hit at my office party. I used the recipes on making herbal vinigers to make Christmas Presents.
The craft ideas are not impossible. I liked all the ideas for wedding using herbs/flowers. How very nice. The nosegays, wreaths, and other crafts were lovely.
There was a wealth of information regarding uses of herbs, recipes, garden plans, crafts, meaning of herbs, storing herbs, drying herbs, and other ideas.
I find that I turn to this book many times when looking for Christmas ideas, craft bazaar ideas, information regarding herbs etc.
I am glad I have this book on my shelves.

This is one book that I am constantly getting into, rain or shine, cold weather and hot. Its a great book just to read and look at, not because of pictures, but just for the recipes, ideas, suggestions and general information. Its simple to use and its not full of techincal jargon that you have to look up constantly to understand what she is talking about. I highly suggest for anyone who cooks, wants gift ideas, or for any other reason
