    • it is the same size as the tomato book, the colours are absolutely gorgeous, altho, you can see a little of it in the photographs, just chock full of information from start to finish.

      Just LOVE it !

  1. Wow this book looks fabulous. I love the photographs and the recipes. It’s really got everything you could want in one place. Growing herbs is so easy because most will grow in a pot. I’m definitely going to track this one down.

  2. Beth, that is the exact reason I wanted this book. it is a fabulous little book. I am already planning out what containers I want to use to grow some herbs this summer ! Not only do they look good, they smell wonderful as well
