Country Living Gardener serves up a feast for the eyes, a font of practical information, and a treat for all gardeners. Herbs are among our oldest garden plants, but this is a contemporary, fresh look at cultivating them. These beautiful pages reveal everything about growing and caring for herbs, along with inspirational ideas for using them. It makes herb growing accessible to all, including urban dwellers who grow them in pots. A special directory features more than 100 herbs, including those made popular by Native American herbalists, while other information covers planning, planting, and realizing a herb garden, with seasonal guidelines. Culinary, medicinal, cosmetic, and aromatic herbs are all discussed. Great "instant" information throughout plus "10 Best" lists make this manual unequalled.
