Through the centuries, herbs have been cultivated in the kitchen garden for their flavors and healing properties. Here, in The Herb Garden, Malcolm Hillier reveals how these rewarding plants can be grown in traditional ways - or in the decorative garden, contributing an exciting range of colors, forms, and fragrances.
Use Malcolm Hillier's imaginative - yet completely practical - layouts to unlock the design potential of these enchanting plants. His plans give gardeners a tremendous range of creative ideas for planting herbs in borders and containers, between paving stones and alongside paths, against walls or fences, and over arbors and arches.
The fully illustrated directory at the back of the book recommends the author's 50 favorite herbs, those he uses most frequently in his own plantings. Each is illustrated in full color and described in concise notes that include information on herbal uses as well as all the essential cultivation instructions you need to grow these herbs. Let Malcolm Hillier help you turn your garden into a beautiful and useful herb garden.
