Herb Book - My Best Kept Secret Newsletter
HERB BOOK - My Best Kept Secret
One of the favorite books that I’ve written is Herbs for Texas. Curiously it has not sold as well as many of my other books and continues to be our best kept secret. Let's try to change that.
From the book’s introduction:
Like our Texas Organic Vegetable Gardening book, the title is misleading. This herb book is not just helpful for Texas gardeners, but also for folks coast-to-coast and border-to-border. The things that vary across the country are timing (when to do things) and specific varieties of plants to use.
I think a lot of people, especially guys, think that herbs are just for making potpourri, sachets and food seasonings, but herbs are much more than that. My definition of an herb is any plant that has a use other than just looking pretty.
The herb book covers the plants in several ways: 1) the horticultural aspects of selection, planting and management, 2) the landscape uses, 3) the culinary aspects, 4) the medicinal aspects, and 5) other uses.
The book has photos of nearly 150 herbs, along with detailed information on each plant’s characteristics, maintenance requirements and uses.
You can buy Herbs for Texas and all my other books in independent garden centers, hardware stores and bookstores. There is also a special deal on them through dirtdoctor.com that helps raise money for the Texas Organic Research Center.
