Herb Gardening 101
An herb garden may be a good option if: l you have limited space l you don’t have a lot of time to devote to gardening l you’re unable, for physical reasons, to spend a lot of time on your hands and knees l 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).
Creating your own herb garden can not only give you a sense of accomplishment but also provide you with cooking additions and sensory stimulation!
