Southern Herb Growing

Southern Herb Growing by Madalene Hill and Jean Hardy is a comprehensive book on everything from herb selection for our tough southern climate to designing an herb garden to preserving and cooking with herbs.
In the introduction, Madalene Hill tells the story of beginning her restaurant in Houston, Texas despite the fact that she had retired and just planned to enjoy cooking. The restaurant and herb garden grew into a booming family business. Much of the scientific information on herbs is supplemented with Madalene’s tried and true experience of herb cultivation in a southern climate.
This has been the best herb book I have come across so far. However, I have yet to try some of the recipes from the family restaurant, but I look forward to trying the recipes for herb butter and parsley soup.
If you have used an herb reference that you found particularly helpful, please add a comment to the blog. ~Lisa
