An herb garden may be a good option if:
  • l 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)
