The Herb Guide
The Herb Guide
The Herb Guide will answer your questions on the best methods of growing and using herbs.
From angelica through basil and parsley to wormwood - from culinary through cosmetic to medicinal - from growing to storing.
You will find information on the best herbs to select for an indoor garden, herbs that you should have growing fresh and which are OK to buy dried.
Don't let the snobs put you off about dried - the debate rages and here in the Herb Guide you can rest assured, that whatever way you want to use herbs is OK.
Drying herbs is an ancient method of storing them - you need a cool and airy place to leave them - constant temperatures are necessary - modern houses don't have places like that so if you don't grow them yourself or buy them fresh, then go buy them at a shop that has a quick turnover - contrary to popular opinion, dried herbs do not taste of 'nothing' if they're fresh dried.
Big companies spend thousands of pounds on researching the best methods of drying and storing - you couldn't possibly recreate those conditions, so when your supply in the garden runs out or if you simply don't have space to grow any herbs, then the Herb Guide recommends that you BUY dried herbs - any herbs are better than none ;-)
