By TJ Currey on June 20, 1999
I decided to start an indoor herbal garden, and this was one of the first books I picked up. Not only was it informative about plant care, it also provided some very interesting recipes, concoctions, folklore, and tips on storing and processing the herbs.

This book is a very good introduction into herbs and flowers that can be eaten as well as used medicinally or as garden plants.

It is very basic, and will be of little use to the experienced herb gardener or kitchen herbalist. There are about five paragraphs of information for each of the 50 herbs listed; background, how to grow, how to use, top choices, and hints and tips.

Where I found this book excellent is the colored photographs and the Latin names make plant identification very easy. Basic information for drying, candying, and other means of preservation and propagation is included, and there is a zone map and an excellent index.

Beautiful in its simplicity, this is a very good starter book, and recommended as such.
