If you like to garden and haven't yet explored the wonderful world of herbs, you don't know what you're missing. For starters, herbs are both beautiful and practical. There's no prettier blue flower than borage's-celebrated since the fourteenth century as a mood elevator and "emboldener of the heart"-and no more fascinating foliage than santolina's, which is good for treating bites, skin problems, worms, and discouraging moths. As for freshness and variety, nothing on a supermarket spice shelf can compare to the savory delights you'll find in your own herb garden. And as an added bonus, as an herb gardener, you are the inheritor of a rich body of fascinating, often wacky folklore going back thousands of years-for instance, did you know that parsley grows better for a wicked gardener than for a virtuous one?

Your guide to creating a garden that smells and tastes as good as it looks, Herb Gardening For Dummies fills you in on everything you need to know to:

Understand the different types of herbs Landscape with herbs Cultivate herbs indoors and in containers Harvest and preserve your herbs Use herbs for cooking, potpourris, health, or teas

Written by award-winning garden writer Kathleen Fisher with the support and participation of the experts at The National Gardening Association, Herb Gardening For Dummies :
