The herb section is by no means as comprehensive as the veg part of the book, but it has inspired me to grow my own selection of herbs (in one of those very attractive "ornamental" wooden wheelbarrows,my wife's aunty got us for Christmas - bless) & hopefully add something a bit different, interesting & above all, tasty to the garden.
I bought this at the same time as a far glossier, bigger (& more expensive !) book I got from the garden centre - this book beats the more expensive competition hands down. A really great investment, made me burst with horticultural enthusiasm & feel like Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's cousin - talking of which, I would suggest that this plus the River Cottage Veg Patch Handbook make the ideal duo for the beginner.
Having said that, now we have a smattering of knowledge, we find it often provides info not apparent in our "Noddy" version books...
Oh, and it is NOT a "Herb EXPERT" book at all (as only a smattering of herbs are actually covered as an almost afterthought)!
It is an extremely competent & good value veg gardening book, however.
