With an almost alchemical power, herbs can provide flavours and scents unlike any other. Growing the source of these intense flavours can now be a reality for gardeners and food enthusiasts with any size of garden, from an acre to a window box. Culinary herbs can be used as seeds, flowers or leaves; cooked and eaten themselves or used to infuse a dish or drink. They are now being used in artisan gin, ice cubes and cocktail syrups; in foraged dishes and kitchen gardens and often the only way to capture that elusive flavour is to have home-grown, freshly harvested herbs on your doorstep. Find out how to develop your own herb garden and grow herbs in all situations. Comprehensive information is given on how to plant, propagate, harvest and use herbs in the most interesting ways from planting a herb roof to making herbal oils. The 75 most exciting herbs are also identified, illustrated and their uses explained. Underpinned by the authority of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the expertise of Holly Farrell, The Kew Gardener’s Guide to Growing Herbs combines practical elements with inspiration and beauty.

Harold's warm, wise voice is always encouraging and enthusiastic, and Coralee's lively engaging prose will have you reading as much for pleasure as for its valuable information.

That is why, you can be certain that millenniums ago when some enterprising soul learned how to domesticate wild plants and grow them in his own little yard for food, shelter and wood, one fine day he decided – what is going to happen if I can grow the branch of such and such tree on such and such other tree? That means I am going to have oranges and apples in one parent tree. The start of such creative ideas must have given rise to many bizarre experimentations, most of which would fail monumentally. However, as time went by, and more and more people started to experiment, they gained more knowledge and gardening experience related to plant propagation. In the natural state, you are going to see different vegetative propagation methods through which a plant can grow. That means the plant is going to grow its own seeds, and use natural methods like air, wind and water to spread the seeds far and wide. In a strawberry, you are going to have the plant sending out long branches trailing on the soil. Stimulus of moisture causes the production of roots below a bud on a long branch. The bud is then going to send out shoots. Soon the connection between the new plant and the old plant is severed by a withering up of the intervening branch.
