4. Here's an excellent site for learning about herbs:

http://botanical.com/

They do talk about propagation, but I've mostly just used it for remedies. My other books that I use the most are kind of old, but here are the titles and authors as I do recommend them

The New Holistic Herbal by David Hoffman
Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs by John Heinerman
Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs (multiple writers)

Rodale publishes many good books on gardening and health. Heinerman has many books on the same and the Hoffman book has newer editions, but I didn't like the new layout.
