Create a delicious gift with a kitchen garden in a planter or window box. Plant herbs from mom's favorite recipe or choose a food theme like Italian or Mexican! A delicious gift!
Here are seven versatile and easy to grow herbs for the garden:
A spicy Bush basil has tiny leaves, so no need to chop them up to use! A quick-growing plant that is perfect for everything from salads to pastas.
Chives are replenishing herb, cut and they come again! The flowers of onion chives make a beautiful magenta herbal vinegar.
3) VIETNAMESE CORIANDER
If you love cilantro, try this low growing plant. It doesn’t bolt to seed like traditional cilantro. Vietnamese coriander has a delightfully spicy flavor.
If you like an upright plant, French or English thyme is your go-to thyme. Lemon thyme is semi-upright thyme that trails nicely over container rims.
Rosemary is a piney tasting herb that is drought tolerant. Barbecue Rosemary makes a stunning upright specimen plant. Its stems can be used as skewers.
Both Italian and Old Fashioned Parsley will produce an extended harvest. Cut from the outside in.
With its aggressive growing nature, mint is the perfect herb for growing in containers. For a more mild taste, plant spearmint.
