    You're listing so many things I didn't realise were herbs

    Same here, SP. She lists herbs for dyeing as well as cooking, cosmetic, pot pourri etc.
    Each month has a project too. March is planting in containers with suggested plants for a "Pot of Silver" and a "Pot of Gold" and a Topiary project.

    Only had a quick look. It looks good. I'll read it properly when my heads not full of smoke

    I've ordered it too. Being brought over by a friend early April.

    Sadly, my sage plant has died over the course of the winter. It was about 15 years old. Has a much loved and loving cat below it.

    My sage plants look to have bitten the dust too in this last lot of snow.
    Hope you both like the book - I always worry when people buy a book I use.

    ^I need spurring on to do something about my herbal aspirations. Plus, it got a rave review from a buyer on Amazon. Plus, plus, it wasn't exactly bank-breaking!

    By the way, does lavender count as a herb? I've ordered some seeds...
