Lasagna Gardening With Herbs

Lasagna gardening is sweeping the nation, as more and more gardeners discover this simple, sensible method of creating healthy soil for easy-care gardens. Pat Lanza's organic, commonsense approach takes the backbreaking labor out of preparing and planting an aromatic, delicious, and low-maintenance herb garden. Discover Pat's homegrown methods for using more than 50 favorite herbs in recipes, making herbal wreaths and delicious herbal teas, and growing and using edible flowers.

"From the first paragraph of Lasagna Gardening with Herbs to the last, I felt as though I had finally found my soil sister. Pat Lanza writes and gardens with knowledge, passion, and a pioneer spirit. Her easy-to-implement tips, combined with her encyclopedic wisdom about plants and soil, make her book indispensable to both beginning and advanced gardeners."--Sharon Lovejoy, contributing editor of Country Living Gardener, a New York Times syndicated contributor, and author of numerous books, including Trowel & Error

"If Pat Lanza sometimes has dirty fingernails, it's because she's a writer with the hands-on, dig-in-the-dirt passion of a gardener. When she writes about gardening methods, you know she's tried them. And with her discovery of lasagna gardening, she's managed to make it easier for all of us."--Walter Chandoha, animal and garden photographer and author and illustrator of more than 25 books, including The Literary Gardener

"Pat Lanza is the only one I know who turns the world upside down when she gardens. She starts with the basics-- dirt first! Her philosophy is that if you do it right from the garden up and make it fun and easy, the garden will do the rest."--Jim Long, columnist for The Herb Companion and The Herb Quarterly magazines and author of books on herbs and history

"Pat Lanza is a true renaissance woman, always inventing new ways to tackle old tasks. One day she decided to try her lasagna method of soil improvement with herbs. Did it work? Of course! Her small garden produced prodigious harvests of delicious aromatic herbs! Carpe diem!"--Jim W. Wilson, horticulturist and author of numerous books, including Jim Wilson's Container Gardening

About the Author

Patricia Lanza is a lifelong gardener, a popular speaker, and the proprietor of the Potager, a garden gift shop and café in Wurtsboro, New York. Her first book about her time-saving garden methods, Lasagna Gardening, won the prestigious Quill and Trowel Award from the Garden Writers Association of America.

Synopsis:

Hang up your shovel and trowel! Now you can use the time (and money) you save laboring in your garden to actually enjoy it. Drawing on the amazingly simple layering system of gardening developed in her previous "lasagna gardening" books, Lanza applies these principles to the ever popular topic of growing herbs. Her organic, commonsense approach uses natural ingredients, close planting, and generous mulching, with little or no fancy equipment. Here she shares her methods based upon almost fifty years of experience to give readers tips on :

- Using the herbs in recipes

- How to make herbal wreaths and create delicious herbal teas

- Using herbs for aromatherapy and potpourris

- How to grow and use edible flowers

This is the perfect book for all the busy people who want to reap the rewards of a garden but have neither the time, the energy, nor the confidence to get down in the dirt. Accomplished and amateur gardeners alike will love this ingenious process that allows you to create beautiful, productive, low-maintenance herb gardens.
