Whole Plant Harvesting Leaves Harvesting. Herbal Harvesting Flowers Harvesting Seed Harvesting Drying Your Herbs. Herb Storing Using Herbs Herbal tips Bouquet Garni Omelette aux herbes fines Making Herb Tea Conclusion Author Bio Introduction I have already written about how to make a herb garden in another gardening book- How to make a Herb Garden – in our Gardening series, but the gardener cum herbalist is going to get an even more extensive knowledge about how to make a full-fledged herbal garden in this book. Perfumes, juices, oils and other products extracted from seeds, leaves, shoots, and bark of the herbs have been used since the earliest times in religious ceremonies, and in cooking. Magicians used them in making mysterious potions to impress the credulous public. Herb essential oils along with parts of herbs have long been in use down the millenniums to make natural beauty products. The oracles of Delphi were women who had been “intoxicated” on fumes of deadly nightshade, which would make them hallucinate. And then with bay leaves in their mouths-these leaves were considered sacred to Apollo – they used to predict the future. No wonder not many could understand them or interpret their sayings. So each hearer chose the one which suited his requirements the best, and believed the Gods had spoken. Today, these herbs are usually grown for their great value in cooking. That is why it is well worth finding a small place for herbs in any garden. The 21st century world is also slowly and steadily getting back to the idea that the herbal remedies, which were used in alternative medicine in ancient civilizations of the East and West had curative properties. The Egyptians, Babylonians, Chinese, Mayans, Aztecs, Greek and other knowledgeable people all over the world used these herbs, and derived all the healthy benefits of them as often as they could.

Her immediate answer was - she had no time. After that, she looked around and said she had absolutely no free space. Especially for flowerpots, herb pots, and all that mess. This book is not for all those people who go into things with enthusiasm, and then one fine day decided that they do not like dirt under their fingernails. And so they abandon all their gardening efforts and decide to do something else constructive like let us say – moan about high prices for vegetables. This book is for all those who are interested in a back to basics food revival where you are going to grow healthy food for you and your family. More and more people want to eat fresh, seasonal and locally grown foods. Most of us are urbanites. Most of our dwellings are high-rise apartments, where you are not going to find any sort of outside space. You may be living off a really busy, noisy, road and you think that no plant is going to grow there. So not true. So if gardening is your game, and even if you have just limited space, use your ingenuity and creativity and let us start this new campaign of growing your own food and growing healthy naturally. In the beginning of the twentieth century, when England was hit by World War II and all the men went to war, women decided to roll up their sleeves and put food upon their family’s table, as well as feed a whole army! Yes, all the soldiers were fed with food grown by their womenfolk who had joined the woman’s land Army.

These herbs used for millenniums have been an important part of our social traditional and religious fabrics all over the world. No one, without an interest in nature is not going to know more about Rosemary, sage, lavender, thyme, hyssop, basil, and other herbs put into use down the centuries. The awareness of the medical as well as the edible qualities of herbs, was naturally gained in prehistoric days by happy and sad experience. When food was nasty tasting or scarce, the pungent herbs made it more delicious and acceptable to eat. Leafy herbs provided vegetables and salads. Soon people began to find out that some herbs would also heal wounds and ease suffering. So that means that even the herbs that we supposedly used for culinary purposes could be used for healing purposes. In 460 B.C. Greeks were writing about the curative powers of plants. In the East, these herbs were used in alternative medicine, through medical books and compendiums written more than 5000 years ago. In Europe, all medical treatment based on herbs was done, thanks to a book written by Dioscorides in A.D. 60. In ancient Europe, The Greeks, Egyptians and the Romans could not do without their herbs. Culinary delights, especially the blending of sauces, which were made of flowers, herbs, spices and wines were possibly started in a Greek country named Sybaris , from where we get the term “sybarite” , or a person who enjoys pleasure. They were the people who made sleeping on rose petals, a fashion. All the herbs and the flowers which were used to keep the Sybarites happy were grown in the gardens in the plains of Possidonia and you can still see them today. The regular use of a large variety of flowers and herbs for medical and culinary purposes has just come down the ages to us since ancient times. However, in the early – mid-19th century with the rise of industrialization, the popularity of herbs began to grow lesser, because people started to clear up large tracts of lands on which herbs grew, to give way to cities and human settlements. In fact, one great forest in the USA, Limberlost made popular in the writings of a writer and naturalist, Gene Stratton Porter was totally destroyed due to the felling of timber. If Teddy Roosevelt was not such an ardent and dedicated naturalist, many of the great green forest areas of the USA, which are now natural forest reserves, with herbs still present in them, would have been destroyed through man’s encroachment and greed. So apart from these herbs still available in the wilderness, this book is going to tell you how to make an Herb gardening your own house. Thanks to the revival of interest and appreciation of herbs in the 21st century to heal and to cure and to beautify you, people with gardens are realizing the beauty of herbal plants. They are also learning the added pleasure of growing them in their garden, so that they can use these herbs freshly picked. People living in flats are raising these herbs on windowsills by planting them in window boxes. In town gardens, you can grow them in wooden tubs, boxes, and even in large pots on balconies and in your backyards.

Would vegetables and herbs really grow in straw? Is straw bale gardening as easy as it sounds? We usually think of gardening as planting seeds directly in the ground, then weeding them carefully all throughout the growing season. When we tell someone we're about to start a garden, the likely response is “Wow, that's a lot of work!” I was fascinated by the idea that it might be possible to grow lots of vegetables at home, save money on groceries, and not do much work at all while meeting my goals, so I started growing things in straw bales.

Do you want a complete guide to grow vegetable, herbs, plants, organic, microgreens, flowers in pots and containers at home? If you want to know more, keep reading...Growing plants in containers is a unique way of gardening. It is very fascinating because of the fact that the plants can be moved around for a change of pace and particular mood. In recent years, this concept has grown significantly.Container gardening is well-liked by gardeners who live in an area with restricted space or don't have the luxury of an outdoor garden. Even the smallest space can hold a container garden-a garden can be designed that will thrive no matter the space limitations-no matter if you live in a condo, in suburbia, on a farm, or in a high-rise apartment without a patio.Mobility is one great advantage, but aside from that, it is easy to remove or replace unsightly specimens. This also helps eliminate overcrowding. If you are entertaining, you can arrange them in different parts of the home, patio, etc. The colors and foliage can be mixed to create different patterns and effect. Rare and unusual varieties that have special soil and light requirements can be more easily cared for.Aside from the visual effects of container gardening, there are other reasons, which include yard conditions. If you have ever had problems with termites or moles, container gardening is certainly the key. Having gardens too close to your houses is not a wise move, because the water you use on them seeps down to your foundation and attracts termites. For those of us that have small yards or live in apartments or town-homes, container gardening may be the right choice as well.The book covers What Is Container Gardening? Which Vegetables Can We Grow? Decorative Plants Start Sowing Seed Starting and Re-Potting Microgreens Growth Time of Microgreens Herbs What Do I Need for Container Herb Gardening? Ornamentals Plants Variety of Ornamental Plants Different Varieties of Orchids Types of Bonsai Keeping the plants well-fed is easier because they are kept in a small, confined area, meaning all the nutrients will be absorbed solely by the plant itself. Plants in the garden have other plants next to them that can share the nutrients.It is a real time saver too! With containers, the watering, feeding, weeding, and spraying is easy to do.In places where watering is limited, container gardening can also be the solution. In areas where there are very hot and dry summers, there can be drought and potted plants do not require as much water as a full garden planted in the yard. In the North, you can utilize tropical plants. They can be potted and treated as summer specimens and then brought in for the winter.Whether you have a small yard, small patio or live in a high rise building with no yard or patio, container gardening is only limited by your imagination. Window boxes, colorful barrels, hanging baskets and large flowerpots are just some of the containers that can be used for this accomplishment. The container gardener can be a luxurious and beautiful thing. Click BUY NOW bottom!
