I had heard so much about Rosalind Creasy and what a garden god she is... I just had to find out why her books are so popular. Maybe it was all the build up? I don't know. But I know I am incredibly disappointed by this book and the edible flowers garden companion piece which I checked out at the same time. What a bunch of fluff! Is this a Sunset publication? Over and over she re-uses the SAME photos. At one point only 2 pages separated the exact same image. One cropped slightly. Several times she shows the progression photos of a garden area over many months... only to show a TOTALLY DIFFERENT GARDEN! Does she think I cannot tell that the enormous rose bushes in background are now missing and replaced by tomatoes? For this book she enlisted the help of creme-de-la-creme herb experts to plant test gardens. THIS I WISH SHE HAD EXPANDED UPON. It is a shame really. I want to know what THOSE gardens where like from planning to inception. The encyclopedia of herbs was nice but there are more thorough books that cover this better. Her recipes are what really saved the book entirely... but she also has a cookbook, so why not just check out her cookbooks? Ros, ros, ros... oh how much I have heard about you and oh how much you have let me down.
