GROWING HERBS – the herb garden

Herbs provide us with the most wonderful collection of plants. They not only look good and smell amazing but they also do you good. With some fresh herbs to have they can transform any meal into a culinary feast. So get growing in your herb garden!

It doesn’t matter where you live, from the largest estate to a top floor flat, anyone can grow an indoor herb garden. Most are quite happy in your space decorating your windowsills.

One word of caution – don’t try to nurture the supermarket “potted fresh herbs” expecting them to last for months – they aren’t meant to. For the price of a herb pot from the supermarket you can get a pot that IS meant to last from any garden centre!

If I was starting again, I’d buy the following 5 herbs in medium sized pots: Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Mint and Sage with maybe a little Bay tree and some Chives too!  Then I can never restrict myself where herbs are concerned …

Even if you are going to grow your plants in containers or you own garden outside, these herbs are great ones to begin with for your herb garden.
