Herb Gardening 101
An herb garden may be a good option if:
You have limited spac.
You enjoy fresh herbs in cooking and salads.
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).
Oregano - Great for Italian dishes.
