Herbs in Bloom: A Guide to Growing Herbs as Ornamental Plants
Jo Ann Gardner has been growing herbs for more than 25 years on her Cape Breton Island farm. Her A-Z selection of 80 favorite flowering herbs is full of detailed information on how to grow each herb from seed or cuttings, with systematic advice on site selection, soils, transplanting, and other practical concerns based on her own experience. She suggests appropriate landscape uses, and discusses interesting facts of history and lore along with the occasional recipe. As well as the featured herbs treated in depth, she mentions related plants of interest and selected cultivars. In all, more than 700 herbs are described. An appendix grouping herbs by prime bloom season will help the gardener plan for long-lasting garden color.
