Herb gardening in pots affords all the larger pleasures of gardening in microcosm. With skill, imagination and flair the results can be spectacular In a book full of delights the author shares her thoughts on the history and cultivation of herbs as well as giving specific advice on propagation and training. Taking a decorative approach she reminds us that there is always room somewhere for a garden of potted herbs and that there may be no better Christmas tree than a pine-scented rosemary topiary planted in an old rose pot. Instructions, recipes and fresh ideas for using herbs, spring wreaths, ointments, sachets, foods and presents are all prettily illustrated with the author's drawings.
