Herbs provide flavours and scents unlike any other, and the 80 hand-picked herbs in this book are a living trove of fresh flavours for any cook, with power to transform the simplest dish.
Find out how to grow herbs in beds, pots, borders and windowboxes, how to plant, and how to propagate and harvest your herbs, as the kew experts equip you with all you need to create a flourishing herb garden of your very own.
Following this, 80 of the most important and exciting herbs are identified, illustrated and their uses explained. This is accompanied by 12 projects which show how to develop a herb garden at the next level and use herbs in the most interesting and creative ways, from planting a herb roof to making herbal oils.
Herbs can be used as seeds, flowers, or leaves; cooked and eaten themselves or used to infuse a dish or drink. They are high-value ingredients for foraged dishes, and must-have crops for the best restaurants as chefs realise that often the only way to capture their elusive flavour is to grow and harvest fresh herbs on their doorstep.
With this book these intense flavours can now be a reality for gardeners and home-cooks with any size of garden, from an acre to a window box. Underpinned by the authority of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the expertise of Holly Farrell this book combines practical elements with inspiration and beauty.

Projects to Try
A Vertical Herb Garden
1. Having secured the planter to a wall or fence, fill the base of each pouch with potting compost.
2. Place the plants – here different thymes and camomile – into the pouches and check the top of each rootball will not be too high in its pouch.
3. Backfill each pouch with compost to secure the rootball in place.
4. Water very carefully and gradually, to avoid water and compost spilling over the pouch edges.
1. Pour good-quality olive oil into a clean, sterilized bottle or bottles.
2. Select one or more types of herb and ensure each is fresh and disease-free.
3. Push the herbs into each bottle; the more herbs used, the stronger the flavour will be in the oil.
4. Seal, then leave to infuse for two weeks before using. Remove the herbs once the bottle is opened.
Harvesting Seed & Fennel Pollen
1. On a dry day, select some good-quality fennel flower or seed heads.
2. Cut each head with plenty of stalk attached and upend it into a paper bag (never use a plastic one, because it would foster humidity and therefore rot).
3. Hang each bag somewhere cool and dry for about two weeks.
4. Then use fennel pollen or seed as needed.
1. Wire on small bunches (here, of rosemary) at a time, securing firmly them to the twisted hazel base.
2. Check that the bunches are evenly spaced around the base.
3. Fruits such as chillies can add colour to the wreath.
4. A wreath is a decorative way to dry and store bay leaves in the kitchen.
