|What an extensive encyclopedia of information from A-Z! Complete information in easy to use format with information from propagation, pests and diseases, maintenance, garden cultivation, harvesting, companion planting, container growing, medicinal uses, other uses, and culinary applications & more! I made the Chive Butter and it's hmmmm, hmmmm, good on sweet corn on the cob! Next I plan to try the Sweet Marigold Muffins. It also has info on planning a herb garden with 10 sample plans, beautiful photographys throughout, how to preserve herbs by drying and freezing, and making and using natural dyes! It's a 5 star addition to my extensive herb library.|
