It is hard to imagine a more concise, enlightened or creative approach to the art, science and spirituality of herb gardening than Homegrown Herbs by noted herbalist and gardener Tammi Hartung (Storey Publishing).

A must-have for every herbalist and gardener.

Wow. Where do I even begin with this book?

This book is truly a must-have guide. It is chocked full of recipes, remedies, color photographs, and detailed information on cultivating your own herbs.

What I found especially useful about this book is how it is so extensive but still manages to be so detailed, simple, but not sloppy. This book covers everything from foraging recipes to how to create your own ointments to how to disinfect your garden tools.
