About this Item
The Prairie Garden
The Prairie Garden Committee
It has been fifteen years since the last herb-themed edition of the Prairie Garden appeared and a whole new generation of gardeners is discovering the diverse joys of growing herbs. These days herb gardens are less often single spaces, but instead intermingle among flowers, vegetables, pots, raised beds and any other gardening concept imaginable. Edible plants are an easy entry point for budding gardeners: everyone can appreciate herbs and they are so well suited to gardens big or small. As one gains experience and grows into a green thumb, herbs continue to offer endless possibilities and rich engagement.
The Prairie Garden 2017: Herbs & Spices, with guest editor Dave Hanson, explores the extent to which the opportunities for growing your own herbs, from organics to year-round cultivation, has changed. It also recommends herbs and spices that once seemed unlikely candidates for the local prairie scene.
