Easy growing herbs for your kitchen garden
With just a little care in choosing the right herbs a herb garden can be an easy and fun way to spice up your culinary creations. Some herbs are easier to grow than others, but just follow the guidelines below to start on the path to herb growing nirvana.
*Visit a local nursery: Individual herbs perform differently depending on your region. Visit a local nursery and examine the tags of the herbs they have on display to see which herbs are ideal for your geographical area.
*Set aside space: Growing herbs isn’t limited to those who live in the country with lots of open land. Even a city dweller in a small apartment can grow herbs successfully in a window box. Mint, rosemary, or lemon balm will also add an aromatic freshness to the apartment that’s beyond compare.
*Grow herbs you’ll use: If you don’t like the taste of an herb in your food, then don’t pick that herb to grow. If it has a pleasing smell or especially attractive look you can ignore this tip of course. Some people do grow herbs just for the look or aroma.
*Share the bounty: After just a short time you may find yourself with more of certain herbs than you’ll ever use. Take this opportunity to share your herb gardens bounty with your friends, family, and neighbors. If they grow herbs you do not and have extra then arrange a trade.
*Have fun: The most important thing to remember when growing an herb garden is that you enjoy it. Pick herbs that you like and have fun growing them. Herbs can add spice and color to your food, and your day.
