Book Review: Herbs: The Complete Gardener's Guide

Herbs: The Complete Gardener's Guide
by Patrick Lima, photography and illustrations by Turid Forsyth
Firefly Books, 222 pages, softcover, $24.95.

Patrick Lima's graceful garden prose takes a wide-ranging approach to herbs. His observations and advice are anchored in the herbs he and his partner grow at Larkwhistle, their garden high up on Ontario's Bruce Peninsula, as well as those found in the garden of his collaborator Turid Forsyth. Some chapters are devoted to such idiosyncratic subjects as alliums and garden silverware-or herbs with silvery leaves. Turid Forsyth's watercolours and photographs are given lots of elbow room to very good effect. A lovely book.
