Review: The Herb Gardener: A Guide for All Seasons

User Review  - William - Goodreads

Lots of good advice on herbs. Covers all the basics and goes beyond the basics. Curious that the author fails to include costmary (bible leaf), one of my favorite herbs. I read the library copy but probably worth buying. Read full review
