Long out of print, the popular Herbs: The Complete Gardener's Guide by Patrick Lima (Firefly Publishing, 2012, $24.95) is once more available. It's a comprehensive guide filled with magnificent color photographs by Turid Forsyth, as well as beautiful watercolor illustrations. The book covers all major categories of herbs, their cultivation and uses, including culinary and medicinal. The book is very readable and should be part of every gardener's resource library.
