Are you thinking of planting herbs in your herb garden this year? I know I was. It is hard to believe that some herbs can be grown in your regular garden, but they can. I have learned how to do it and I want you to learn how to do it as well. I had a small garden growing up using all natural herbs but I wanted to do something different so I decided to plant mint and Rosemary and ever since I started doing that I have enjoyed growing herbs and now I would love to get more into it.
Some of the most beautiful gardens can be created by growing herbs right on your patio. You can use them in salads and soups and also as many other dishes that call for herbs. A wonderful thing about growing herbs is that they do not require a lot of tending to or mowing. They can grow easily too. In fact, many varieties will grow quite tall if placed in the right spot with good drainage. And you can have an assortment of herbs growing on your patio at the same time without any problems.
Most people think that harvesting wild herbs is an issue and that they are only for cooking. But the truth is, you can take the leaves off and make tea from them too. One type of herbs I like to harvest is the wild ginger. I use it in my baked goods and it adds a great deal to the taste.
Ginger is one of the easiest herbs to grow and one of the most popular. I have harvested and sold many of the small plants over the years. A few of those plants were from my semi-wild herb garden. The one plant was of the golden color variety that has pretty flowers and red leaves.
So you see, growing herbs in your own garden is not only fun, it’s also good for your health. And if you are someone who likes to cook with fresh herbs then you will love growing your own herbs in your own natural medicinal garden. You won’t have to travel to the store for the best fresh herbs when you have your own natural medicinal garden in your backyard. And you will never have to worry about the harsh chemicals used in commercial gardens when you grow your own herbs in your own garden.
I grew two cilantro plants along with some basil. All of these herbs are lovely and have very pleasant smells. However, I have learned that cilantro is much easier to grow than the other two herbs. It’s a tough little herb but once you get the hang of it you’ll be harvesting and eating delicious fresh cilantro all year long.
Most people just purchase herbs from their grocery store. I prefer to grow my own herbs because the packaging is much nicer. Plus, I can smell the plant as soon as it starts to grow. And if I harvest plants before they’re ready then I know that they’re fresh. This is especially true with most citrus varieties.
I’ve been enjoying growing chives since I started growing my own herbs. These little potted herbs start out in a small pot, which makes them easy to move around. I simply transfer the pots into the sun or in the coldest part of the house when it gets too hot to handle. I love chives because they smell so good. And if you’re like me, you can smell potted herbs almost as soon as they are plucked from the plant.
