    This is a pretty standard gardening book featuring 40 of the most popular herbs for the home garden Each one features a stock photo, a description of the taste and the types of ways the herb is typically used, and detailed growing information All of this goes into great detail There are also basic recipes for how to make syrups, herb butters, pastes and such, plus some information on how to dry herbs, container gardening, common plant problems, etc.It looks like this is a revision of an earlier book these three authors put out with the same publishing company, The Culinary Herbal That one featured 97 herbs and it sounds like there were some rare herbs and some wild edible ones like wood sorrel which I would have liked to see.The book does not feature recipes to use the herbs I would have liked to see recipes for each herb and also things like tasting charts, symbols to show whether things were annuals and how difficult they are to grow, etc All in all, this is a well done book but it just feels a little throw away It is the 17th book by the main author and maybe things are just getting a little formulaic I don t know, but I tend to take notes and screen shots and highlight, bookmark, etc as I read and there just wasn t really anything here th...
