Heather's Helpful Hint

Easy to Grow Herbs
July 26, 2012

Unlike many other types of gardening, herbs are inexpensive to purchase and easy to grow and maintain. While certain herbs have medicinal or ornamental purposes, most of us are quite familiar with culinary herbs. Flavorful plants such as basil, rosemary, parsley, and oregano have become staples in the spice cabinets of many American homes.

While dried herbs are good in a pinch, they can't compare to the taste of fresh herbs. The good news is that with few exceptions, everyone can grow these plants. Window box and container herb gardens work beautifully for townhome or apartment dwellers while raised beds or borders of herbs are both useful and lovely especially when planted close to the kitchen door.

Many herbs are still available for planting and in no time at all with good soil and proper watering, you will be enjoying the fruits of your labor. Drop by our greenhouse soon to begin or add to your own fresh herb garden!
