Jekka’s Complete Herb Book by Jekka McVicar


A quick informative guide to herbs and their uses

My rating:  5/5

A beautiful book that gives all the basic information needed to choose which herbs to grow, and what to do with them once you’ve grown them.

Useful practical information on over 150 herbs, with each herb described over one or two pages.  Loads of photographs, information on how to grow the herbs, the different varieties, how to propagate them etc.   There are also sections on “medicinal” uses, how to cook with the herbs, and often recipes as well.

Beautifully presented, this is a book to browse through and enjoy.  All the text is set out in small paragraphs, with clear headings, and the herbs are in alphabetical order (by Latin name), with a useful index at the back.

5*s from me, as this book contains just the right amount of information for me to quickly find out what I want to know about herbs.  Not only a useful book, but also one to leave around for friends to pick up and enjoy.
