Growing herbs and cooking with them has become more popular. With a good selection available at many nurseries, March is a great time to start planting.
As with any gardening, it all comes down to the right plant for the right spot. Also, what herbs do you actually use? Most herbs will not tolerate poorly drained soils, and most need plenty of sunlight. The most popular herbs for the garden include parsley, rosemary, lavender, thyme, chives, sage, cilantro, dill and basil.
Herbs can be planted in the ground near a vegetable garden or can be grown in containers. Planting them within easy access of the kitchen will encourage their use.
Many herbs are easy plants to grow in the garden, if you are aware of their needs. Take a little time to learn what your herbs need to thrive. Not only will they be beautiful, they’ll be useful.
