Lasagna Gardening With Herbs

"From the first paragraph of Lasagna Gardening with Herbs to the last, I felt as though I had finally found my soil sister. Pat Lanza writes and gardens with knowledge, passion, and a pioneer spirit. Her easy-to-implement tips, combined with her encyclopedic wisdom about plants and soil, make her book indispensable to both beginning and advanced gardeners."—Sharon Lovejoy, contributing editor of Country Living Gardener, a New York Times syndicated contributor, and author of numerous books, including Trowel & Error

"If Pat Lanza sometimes has dirty fingernails, it's because she's a writer with the hands-on, dig-in-the-dirt passion of a gardener. When she writes about gardening methods, you know she's tried them. And with her discovery of lasagna gardening, she's managed to make it easier for all of us."—Walter Chandoha, animal and garden photographer and author and illustrator of more than 25 books, including The Literary Gardener

"Pat Lanza is the only one I know who turns the world upside down when she gardens. She starts with the basics— dirt first! Her philosophy is that if you do it right from the garden up and make it fun and easy, the garden will do the rest."—Jim Long, columnist for The Herb Companion and The Herb Quarterly magazines and author of books on herbs and history

"Pat Lanza is a true renaissance woman, always inventing new ways to tackle old tasks. One day she decided to try her lasagna method of soil improvement with herbs. Did it work? Of course! Her small garden produced prodigious harvests of delicious aromatic herbs! Carpe diem!"—Jim W. Wilson, horticulturist and author of numerous books, including Jim Wilson's Container Gardening
