I bought this as a replacement for a previously owned copy that got stolen. The edition I had before split the information about the herbs into 2 separate sections, which was fairly awkward to use, but I still found it invaluable. The new layout is easier to use, and confirms this book as by far the most comprehensive reference to herbs I've come across - but what do you expect from the Royal Horticultural Society? Surely no less than that. And it lives up to their reputation well. Beautifully illustrated with lots of full color photographs.

I recently bought a kindle which is very good in so many ways for certain kinds of books...however, it will never replace books like this one. Pure book pleasure for me...informative, beautiful in the way it is presented and laid out and I am very glad that I purchased it.

This book is not only comprehensive in its text but also a beautiful book to have in your collection. It includes culinary and medicinal information on herbs making it a good "all rounder".

This is a delightful book with a breadth of information that is a delight. Beautifully illustrated with colour photos and hundreds of entries of familiar and exotic herbs accompanied by authoritative descriptions and data for each one. The book is nicely bound and stylishly presented. A great reference for any gardener or cook with an interest in growing herbs from a trusted source of expertise on horticultural topics.

In my view the RHS Encyclopedia of Herbs is probably the only book you you will ever need. Very well illustrated and full of useful information about herbs. There is also a section on herb gardens and the design of herb gardens.

Purchased this for my Partner for Christmas, as he loves herbs to cook with, it has lots of information on herbs and their uses, and how best to get them to grow healthy crops.

Very impressed, loves the book, but needs time to read it through, so far has picked up the info on the herbs we already have, but is looking to expand the herbs to a proper herb garden in the near future.
