Description
Delicious when added to food, curative when taken medicinally, herbs have a wide range of uses. As long as there's suitable soil and shelter from wind, these adaptable plants flourish on the sill and in the garden, so you can use them at their freshest. Uncover invaluable advice on buying and planting herbs, alternative methods of propagation. Close-up drawings show how to sow seedlings, and replant cuttings from the stem or root. Examples of miniature herb gardens, as well as more elaborate block planting, will pique your imagination and suggest possible layouts. Here are all the popular culinary, healing, and scented herbs, each shown in glorious color, with details of its origins, uses, and growing habits, and practical tips on harvesting and storage. Preserve the value and flavor of herbs by effective drying, including artificial heat, drying rooms, and rubbing down. From the flavorful Alexanders to the fragrant wormwood, you'll enjoy the results of your efforts all year long!
