Gardening Books: Culinary Gardens

July 12th, 2008

I have been trying to decide on a final design for my culinary garden, so I have been reading a lot of books on the subject looking for some inspiration.

I just finished reading Culinary Gardens: From Design to Palate. I wasn’t super impressed with this book. It has a lot of garden styles with plans for each one, but the plans are hard to decipher. She has plants labeled by color, but it’s hard to tell which green on the plan is for basil and which is for chives. Besides a few recommendations for specific types of vegetables to grow, I didn’t get much out of this book. I’m glad I borrowed it from the library and didn’t buy it!
