Fresh herbs can be added to any fresh cooked meal, which is one of the many great reasons to create an herb garden. Here are a few more.
Herb Gardens Are Easy To Grow
You don’t have to have a green thumb to grow your own fresh herbs. Start from seeds, or buy mini plants at your local grocer or greenery. You can grow them in your yard, in a pot outdoors, or even in a window box garden. You only need to water once or twice a week indoors, or a sprinkling of water during warm weather.
Growing Your Own Herb Garden Saves You Money
When you buy fresh herbs in the grocery store, they cost more than a pack of seeds—per serving. Grow your own, and save tons of money. Not only that, but they taste better, and are always on hand.
You Can Dry What You Don’t Need
Even a small window box garden will grow more fresh herbs than you need. Simply hang and dry what you don’t use, and buy less dried herbs too. Just be sure to store in an air tight container once dry.
Some of the easiest and most versatile options for your fresh herb garden include parsley, basil, chives, and thyme.
