I can recommend Jekka McVicar's "New Book of Herbs" for anyone who has an interest in herbs.
I can recommend Jekka McVicar's "New Book of Herbs" for anyone who has an interest in herbs. The focus is on growing herbs, which makes a lot of sense since Jekka is the UK's leading herb expert and has won more than 60 Royal Horticultural Society gold medals for their herb exhibits around Britain. This book provides a wealth of information but doesnt just limit itself to growing herbs. I love that it also covers a multitude of uses for the herbs you have grown
