BURPEE AMERICAN GARDENING SERIES: Herbs by Martha E. Kraska (Prentice Hall: $8., illustrated). Although listing the various plants only by their Latin names may initially discourage some readers, this entry in the respected gardening series offers straightforward, no-nonsense tips on raising herbs. Kraska sensibly sticks to the subject at hand, and the text is refreshingly free of the recipes and suggestions for expanding a kitchen garden into a New Age life style that spoil many gardening books. As planting time in Southern California is rapidly approaching, anyone interested in preparing a yard (or a planter on an apartment balcony) will find useful tips in this attractive manual.
