9780020309758: Herbs: Their Culture and Uses (American Gardening Classics)

Herbs First published in 1942, Herbs: Their Culture and Uses provides everything you need to know about herb gardening, whether it's advice about design, soil preparation, and planting; or harvesting, drying, and packaging your own herbs. There are instructions for making herbal dyes, potpourris and sachets, teas and other beverages, and vinegars and jellies, in addition to recommendations on cooking with herbs, complete with recipes. Herbs also describes 101 annual and perennial herbs, how to propagate them, their cultural requirements, and their medicinal, culinary, and household uses. It has quick-reference lists of fragrant herbs, herbs for continuous garden bloom, biblical herbs, herbs that attract bees, herbs with colorful flowers, and herbs that grow under a variety of conditions--wet soil, dry soil, shade, or partial shade. For the gardener interested in herbs, Herbs: Their Culture and Uses is the complete reference.

About the Author:

Rosetta E. Clarkson was also the author of Green Enchantment and Magic Gardens, both about the history of gardening, and the publisher of The Herb Journal. Her own gardens at Salt Acres, on the Connecticut shore, furnished rare herb seeds to restock English seed companies during World War II, and her library of ancient herbals and gardening books was one of the choicest of its kind in the world. Gertrude B. Foster and her husband, Philip, were the publishers of The Herb Grower Magazine from 1947 to 1984. Mrs. Foster is also the author of Herbs for Every Garden.
