There's a great new book out "Herbs: Their cultivation and usage" by John and Rosemary Hemphill, published by Lansdowne.
For non-Australians, the Hemphill family (Herbies) have been #1 in herb cultivation in Oz for decades.

It covers propagation (position, soil, height, part to use), description of plant; history and mythology, cultivation, harvesting and processing and various uses-culinary, medicinal, cosmetic and companion planting.

There is also a section at the rear of the book for recipes using the various herbs.

It's hardback, with dust jacket and about 1/2 A4 size and is user-friendly. 256 pages including index.

I have no personal financial interest in this book.I am a "trade" customer of "Herbie's Spices. Just wanted to pass on the info for you to take or leave.

Happy cooking with herbs,
Maree
