Creating an herb garden does not require a plot of land. A variety of containers -- wild, weird, and wonderful -- provide perfect settings for all kinds of herbs, making it possible to garden indoors and out. Herbs in Pots tells gardeners how to find or make containers, plant the herbs, and artfully integrate Pots into an exiting garden. Additional ideas for container gardens include creating a cooks patio with salsa, pesto, and other flavors: making a potted herb topiary; and many more creative suggestions. Beautiful color photographs and helpful charts appear throughout.
