This slim volume by Happy Farm Canada is a rare gem. Considering the fact that herbs have been known to mankind ever since the dawn of civilization, we obviously don’t expect new botanical information. However, the author of the book shares real-world lessons learned from growing herbs in extremely cold climates like Canada, northern USA and Europe. These practical tips make this book truly invaluable.
The book discusses six of the most flavorful, fragrant and nutritious herbs found in nature – Parsley, Mint, Coriander, Dill, Lemon Thyme and Rosemary.
In a very concise and fun way the book explores the important aspects of growing each of the six herbs including some cool facts, common pests and diseases specific to each herb, and tips for flourishing your plants. I especially loved the ‘how to enjoy’ section for each herb, and the very useful (and yet easy to do) herb related project ideas.
If you are thinking of starting a herb garden, then I would highly recommend reading this book. It will inspire you and make things easier for you as the lessons learned documented in this book are very helpful.
