My Review:
First of all, I must say that the book is really attractive in visual meaning! The pictures inside and the font make the book more interesting and enjoyable. Also I love the quick tips about growing herbs. The book gives information about how to and where to (inside - outside) grow your own herbs. From the containers (shape, material, etc.) and soil you need to use, to the space suitable for them, from where to buy the seeds and preparation of these, to the detection of the sick plants and how to look after them, you will find all the vital information in this book, because the details are very informative. You will also find the plant types defined in the book, so you can choose which one to grow!
Think about it. We live in a world where almost everything is subject to chemicals. Everything we eat has some sort of hormone, additives, etc. and these sometimes make us sick! Don't you ever feel tired, have stomachache, heartburn, etc? What do you think the reason is? The world has become such an "artificial" place that everything is almost against our nature. But I don't think this will come to an end, unfortunately :( However, we can start at some point making healthy and natural things for ourselves. For example, start reading this book and set to work to grow your own herbs and vegetables for your delicious salads, soup and herbal teas! You will not regret and you will feel happier and more energetic. The pleasure of growing something is very precious. I absolutely recommend this book if you want to be your own personal gardener.

  1. I am super excited about growing some herbs. I have always wanted to grow herbs but never really knew where to start or what to do with them.
