3.0 out of 5 stars Title of book is misleading: vegetable guide NOT about herbs, 7 May 2010
This review is from: The Vegetable & Herb Expert: The world's best-selling book on vegetables & herbs (Paperback)
The section of this book dealing with growing vegetables is excellent but it is misleading to mention herbs in the title. The section on herbs is thin with just a few useless lines describing the herbs and absolutely no description on how to grow herbs in your garden. The herb section is pathetic to the point where the author does not even seem to know how to use herbs often mentioning 'use this herb sparingly as it has a strong flavour', when in reality some herbs such as basil and coriander can be used in large quantities without being overpowering. If you are interested in advice on growing herbs, then look for another book, don't buy this book.
