This is a great tool for people who want or already grow herbs. It has an index that surpasses any I have seen, complete with stuff I had no idea about like flea treatments. How cool is that?!
Honestly, I can't wait until Spring when I can start my boxes here. I would have already but we just moved in not too long ago. This book is going to help me in so many ways, from exact preferences in growth, light and maintenance.
A definite must have for any green thumb!

Great info. I liked the part with photos illustrating how to harvest the plants but each plant is different. There were lots of pictures, but I wish there had been pictures of what to harvest and when(ie. what does a flower look like when it is not fully opened?).
