Gardening With Herbs
Growing herbs is a delightful part of gardening!
There’s nothing like the taste of herbs picked fresh from your garden.Their fresh taste in cooking is incomparable to dry herbs from the supermarket. They are easy to grow, and you can plant them in indoors or outdoors.
When choosing which herbs to grow in your garden, consider what recipes you like to cook, container or in garden beds and whether they’re annual, biennial, or perennial. Lavender, Thyme, Sage, Borage, and Marjoram have the added feature of attracting butterflies and honey bees.
These herbs have a two-year lifecycle; they produce flowers and seeds the second year and then die off.
For the best concentration of taste, pick leaves just as the herb begins to bloom. This is when the oil content in the leaves is greatest.
For those who really love cooking with fresh herbs all year, you can grow Bush Basil, Chives, Oregano, Marjoram, Parsley, Sage, Thyme, and Rosemary indoors.
These herbs have particularly attractive foliage or flowers and can be used in mixed or perennial borders.
