What Do You Know About Growing Herbs?

I really enjoy cooking with herbs! I also enjoy gardening and cooking with my home grown produce. I do try to grow a few herbs in my garden every year. Some times I am lucky and get lots of nice fresh parsley and mint. I have even had some luck with rosemary. I have been given the opportunity to review an Ebook about growing herbs in containers. I was actually so excited to read this Ebook and learn how to get my herbs to grow better then before.
Book Series: Gardening With Little Miss Greenfingers
Title: Growing Culinary Herbs In Containers - Healthy&Delicious! 
Author: Anja Koch
Growing Culinary Herbs In Containers is a comprehensive guide to growing and preserving herbs. The book is so complete I am sure it is the answer to all my herb gardening problems. I have already learned what happened to my rosemary and why it has always grown so poorly. I have my herbs planted on the west facing side of my house. The book has a list of herb that like to be south facing and rosemary is on that list. I also learned that when the foliage starts turning yellow the plants are probably starving and need feeding. I was sure they just needed more water.  
You will also learn where to buy seeds and plants, how to water and fertilize correctly, what kind of lighting and containers you need for the best growth results and how to preserve (drying, freezing and marinating) your herbs. 
Over all I learned so much and understood the easy instructions. This book was fun and enjoying to read. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I decided this year, I am going to plant myself an herb garden.

    Sound like a great book.

  2. I wanted to do that last year, but never got around to it. sandie

  3. Sounds like an awesome book to have for herb-growing! I'll be growing lots of herbs this year.

  4. I would love to be able to grow herbs! I've never had much luck growing things, though. We didn't even try last year.

  5. I enjoy growing my own herbs too. They are so yummy when added fresh to a recipe! Excellent and informative review! Thanks!

  6. I love growing herbs, I do very well with rosemary and mint but I've not had any success with anything else. That don't stop me from trying, every year I plant something new. I didn't know we had to plant them on a particular side which is why I may be having problems. This book would sure come in handy before I try again this year!!

  7. Looks like a decent read to learn more about growing your own herbs. My mom used to grow alot of her own herbs but stopped awhile ago, this would be a nice book to get her so she could get back into it, just think the smell of them would bother me now o:
