How To Grow Herb Garden?

What could be better than a meal made with fresh ingredients flavored by fresh herbs? A simple pizza can be lifted by the addition of fresh basil and boiled potatoes can be given a taste of spring by adding fresh mint. Despite this, how many of us go to the trouble of growing and using fresh herbs? They do have their problems: most require sunny spots in the garden, many die down in winter and some are untidy thugs. However, with careful selection and a little thought, we can have fresh herbs all year round – with very little effort!

Firstly, we need to decide what to grow. Many herbs are invasive weeds so stick to culinary ones. The evergreen thyme, sage, rosemary and bay all make good specimens for sunny spots and have many uses in the ornamental garden.
