  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
From the back cover:

"Gardening organically is so much a part of who I am, I forget to point it out to people," says Rosalind Creasy. "Vegetable gardens can be beautiful, and organic produce is the best the earth has to offer -- the most beautiful, the tastiest, and the easiest on the environment."

The genre of edible flowers and their strictly culinary use has not received a tremendous amount of literary attention. Many similar books hail from Great Britain authors and exhibit a decidedly British tilt in taste.

Author Rosalind Creasy has written extensively on edible gardens and her books are somewhat formulaic in nature. She repeats much of the same materials such as the section on compost is duplicated in each of her companion titles. This is at times an annoyance and waste of money to buyers of multi titles.

She interviews Alice Waters of Chez Panisse about her use of flowers and fortunately, for the reader, Creasy’s recipes are a bit more obliging on the palate than Water’s occasional unseemly combinations.

The photography is stunning. The information is basic.
