Now, Emelie Tolley and Chris Mead, best-selling authors of Herbs: Gardens, Decorations, and Recipes, bring together twenty-five of the world's most beautiful gardens and dozens of innovative and decorative ideas for introducing herbs into the garden landscape.
Photographed in the United States, England, and France, Gardening with Herbs stunningly showcases the extraordinary effects that can be created with herbs, from whimsical knot gardens and shaped topiaries to fragrantly functional hedges, ground covers, and borders. Eminently versatile, herbs can adapt to a broad spectrum of growing conditions, including container gardening and xeriscaping, and can be cultivated specifically for use in the kitchen, for decoration, and even for color. In addition, special sections in the book highlight distinctive features of these exemplary herb gardens, including paths and paving, fences and gates, garden decorations and structures, water in the garden, and much more.
