This is a great book for anyone that enjoys growing and using herbs. I checked it out of the library and didn't want to give it back! Colorful and informative are a couple of words that come to mind. This book is certainly in my top ten of gardening books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
