I’ve fancied myself an amateur home gardener for two years now. Despite that, I bought The Enthusiast’s Guide from Herbs at Home after stumbling across their website on Google, just to see what it was about.

Let me tell you: it was one of the best digital purchases I’ve ever made! The plant ‘info cards’ alone makes it worth the price, and there are so many little nuggets in the more basic advice that I think anyone—no matter if you’re a total beginner or if, like me, you’ve been growing herbs for a while—will get plenty of value from it.

Super job Herbs at Home & team!
