Herbs are among the most versatile of all plants. For centuries they have been cultivated for their culinary, medicinal and aromatic qualities; and today, herbs are still invaluable in the kitchen, as well as being an essential ingredient in the decorative garden (whatever its size or style), contributing a pleasing range of colour, form and fragrance to beds, borders and containers. Using a month-by-month format, this book offers practical information on cultivating, harvesting and using a wide variety of herbs. Each monthly chapter provides an introduction to the herb garden at that time of year, straightforward instructions and a checklist for seasonal tasks, profiles of plants which are at their best, and a detailed practical project.
