Herb Gardening 101
An herb garden may be a good option if:
You have limited space, You don’t have a lot of time to devote to gardening, You’re unable, for physical reasons, to spend a lot of time on your hands and knees, Your garden conditions are less than ideal: poor soil, bad drainage, too much shade or sun (this would require the use of a container garden).
Some popular herbs:
Basil: these annuals will need to be replanted each year. Chives: Established clumps can be divided and transplanted. Dill: Another annual, dill has feathery pale green leaves and pale yellow flowers. Lavender: Has grayish foliage and fragrant lavender flowers. Mint: Is probably the easiest herb to grow in almost any climate. Sage: Another hardy perennial with beautiful foliage and blue flowers. Thyme: Cut for drying before blossoms open (otherwise the flavor is changed).
Plant, use and enjoy. To your health!
