What a great book! Much more than I was expecting. Almost an information overload, in a good way. There are so many great ideas for herbal gardens and herb uses. The information provided about each herb is easy to understand and very helpful, with ways to make a good cup of tea even. (some of the herbs) The recipes look delicious, though I haven't had the opportunity to make one yet. I cannot wait to learn more about herbs and get my garden started! I will definitely be telling others about this book.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
