An updated and expanded edition of Herb Gardening at Its Best, the classic primer for planning and planting 38 culinary herb gardens from America's largest herb grower and retailer, Gilbertie's Herbs.

Garden-fresh herbs impart flavor and fragrance that packaged herbs simply can't. If you have a few yards of soil, or even a sunny windowsill, Herb Gardening from the Ground Up will show you how to design, seed, and nurture 38 culinary herb gardens. Also included- a new introduction on today's herb renaissance; a new chapter on container and windowbox herb gardens; new layouts for French, Italian, Asian, Tex-Mex, and BBQ herb gardens; and a discussion of popular herb newcomers like lemongrass, the new basils, garlics, sages, and more.
