Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jekka's Complete Herb Book: In Association with the RHS (Hardcover)
As a loyal Jekka's Herb Farm customer, I couldn't wait to receive this book. But by the time I reached the last page I was a teeny bit disappointed.
It is extremely well presented and contains LOTS of information. The section on round-the-seasons plant care is invaluable. But I can't help wondering why Jekka chose to include some really obscure plants with no culinary use (and little value for the average herbalist) at the expense of plants more commonly grown, for example rhubarb chard. I've bought these plants from Jekka's business and am still none the wiser as to how to care for them over the winter.
Other than this little niggle, it is a lovely book.

Weeds are the best says:
Rhubarb Chard is a vegetable not a herb.
