Growing herbs is pretty easy. Herbs love the sun (at least 6 hours worth) and most don't mind the dry soil. Not only are herb gardens pretty to look at, the scent is heavenly and they provide you with a fresh supply of seasonings for your kitchen. If anything you'll have more than what you know what to do with. We often give neighbors and friends some fresh herbs, we just can't use them all.

Herbs can be both perennial or annual.


Some popular herbs include: rosemary, oregano, basil, italian parsley, chives, cilantro, thyme, dill,bay, lemon balm
