Herbs add fragrance, beauty and practicality to your garden -- and it's easy to grow a wide variety of them just about anywhere here in the Midwest.

    nice reference for herb lovers

    great guide for those who want to learn more about herbs, their uses and how to maintain in a home garden setting

    this book provides nice photos on every page, with larger type for those who don't want to put on their reading glasses.

    the introduction is a larger section than would be expected, including information on propogation for the more advanced gardener.
