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: The love plant - 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). Great for Tea
