Sage: Unique Multipurpose Herb – Over 500 different sages (salvias) grow wild around the world. Most of us are familiar with more than one of them, although we may not realize they are from the same family. There are aromatic culinary sages, colorful sages for flower beds, perennial ones and annual ones. All require sun and ordinary but well drained soil.
Culinary sage has been an herb garden staple since the 1500’s. It is the traditional seasoning used for stuffing in our holiday turkeys. Growing as a small bush, culinary sages have narrow leaves, softly gray beneath and either green, purple or variegated with yellow or white, depending on the variant. All of these make attractive container plants as well as garden plants. They are hardy to zone 5.
Create Your Indoor Herb Garden – Many people want to know which herb garden plants will grow best inside your home. Well the answer is simple. Nearly all herbal garden plants can be grown inside. However, before you go move your entire container garden inside there are some things to consider. Individual herb garden plants will require different environments in order to grow well.
Growing herb garden plants in your home is not only a great way to add tons of great flavor to food, but it’s also a great way to add beauty to your home. Many herb garden plants are quite beautiful, in addition to being useful.
The Most Important Herbs For Your Kitchen Garden – Herbs in containers should be positioned close to the kitchen so they can easily be picked. Most are easy to grow and even a small container or trough will produce sufficient for everyday use in the kitchen.
Container herbs can be planned in three ways: small containers can be devoted to individual herbs – this is very satisfactory for plants such as mint that are very invasive; a large container can be divided up into compartments in imitation of the traditional herb garden; or a number of herbs can be planted together in one container, grouped for color and contrast.
Spices In Your Garden – One of the great things about spices is that you can grow them yourself with relative ease. And then you will always have fresh spices to use in your cooking. Herb gardens are a delicious way to enjoy your food more and to enjoy the fulfillment that comes from growing plants. Studies have shown that gardening and growing plants actually helps people become more relaxed and enjoy their leisure time. Plants can also help reduce mental fatigue. And, when you grow herbs and spices, you have attractive plants around that do not cost very much money.
Herbs can be grown either outdoors or in. Some people plant herbs as part of their ground cover and flower gardens. This means that they have an attractive landscape that is also useful for cooking.
