A practical guide to herb gardens, the varieties of herbs available and how best to grow and cultivate them. The photographs seek to illustrate the attractiveness of herbs in any situation. Practical instruction on cultivating, propagating, harvesting and using the herbs is set in the wider context of designing a pleasing and functional garden: planning a knot garden, building raised beds and banks, and establishing plants underfoot and training them overhead. A herb index catalogues the enormous variety of herbs available, with illustrations comparing species from the more complicated herb families.
