The Classic Herb Garden

Grub Street Publishers
Free sample

A helpful guidebook to growing herbs successfully and safely, with photos included.
 
Herbs have been used since ancient times both to flavor food and as natural medicines. In this easy-access guide, gardener Gordon Thorburn reveals different types of herb gardens to suit your needs—from those that don’t require a lot of attention (mint and rosemary don’t need much watering, but basil and the beautiful Vietnamese coriander are very demanding), to classic herb gardens, culinary options, and medicinal herb gardens.
 
Whether you suffer from migraines, insomnia, coughs and colds, or fatigue, there are herbs which can treat you without side effects. But some herbs can prove fatal—so you can also discover which herbs are safe to use as herbal teas, but not as salad leaves, in this guide to creating the perfect herb garden for your needs.
 
Each herb is listed with growing instructions and its culinary and medicinal uses, plus the color of its flowers and any must-know information, from health warnings to nature-friendly herbs which attract butterflies and bees to help pollinate your garden.
