I garden in Louisiana and have just about worn this book out. I have followed thier advice with great results. This really is the best reference for growing herbs in the deep south.

Really beautiful and great book. Was given to me while I lived in Texas, but now I find myself gardening in Colorado and still referencing this book.

I had possibly the best dinner of my life at Hilltop Herb Farm back in 1975. What a beautiful place, and how tragic it was destroyed. But this book just can't be beat.

This book is a "must have" for the southern gardener and herb enthusiast. Excellent choice for many hours of educational entertainment.

Just got this for Christmas and it quickly became my favorite. It is a great reference that provides close-up pictures and detailed information on a wide variety of herbs.

The absolute best reference for growing and using herbs in south central Texas ( and in other places, but I am only acquainted with the TX part). The mother and daughter duo founded Hilltop Herb Farm near Cleveland,TX where they grew and harvested herbs, created herbal products and had a mail-out service. Both authors have been speakers on herbs for years. Madalene Hill has been the president of the Herb Society of America.
