Synopsis

Anyone can grow a herb garden.  Herbs are decorative, attract useful insects, are relatively easy to grow, and above all are delicious when used in cooking or flavouring.

 

This book tells you how to grow – and store - your own culinary herbs, from seed or from cuttings. Culinary herbs are herbs which, through generations of use, we know are safe and often beneficial to eat, whether they are fresh, dried, or cooked.

 

It lists 23 of the tastiest and most useful herbs to grow and describes where to plant them, what soil is best for them, which part of the plant to use, and how to use it.

 

Maureen Little

 

Maureen's grasp of horticulture started at a very early age on her father's market garden and plant nursery in Sussex: she soon learned that grasping a nettle was not to be advised, whereas picking a luscious, ripe strawberry straight from the plant left her taste buds tingling.

 

Her horticultural education continued, on and off, alongside conventional education at De Montfort and Lancaster universities, to the extent that she found herself, at various times, teaching in the Royal Navy, lecturing in English Literature at university, training as a professional garden designer and growing herbs.
