Excerpt from page 8.

In the garden, herbs represent both practicality and pleasure. Even the most steadfast vegetable growers make room for a few basil plants for flavoring their tomatoes. And a patch of lavender is a fragrant indulgence that lends its aroma to potpourris and saches all year long.

When your interest in herbs grows beyond simply tucking in a few plants amid your flowers or vegetables, it's time to celebrate herbs in a garden of their very own. Plan an herb garden that suits your personal tastes, style, and needs. One of the most enjoyable parts of planning your herb garden is choosing the plants you want to grow. The world of herbs is far larger than you may have imagined, as you'll discover the first time you open a catalog from a company that specializes in herbs. (See page 155 for a list of resources.) Some seed companies list as many as 28 types of basil and 21 different thymes! And that's only the beginning.
