Never has there been a better time to plant a herb garden and reap the benefits of producing your own fresh, healthy food. And, of course, they are a pleasure to grow and make a pretty display.
Making use of home gardens for kitchen produce has always been a sensible thing to do and this collection of 12 plug plants provides an easy and enjoyable way to establish some fabulous herb varieties. They are easy to grow and harvest, take up very little space and give you almost instant results – there's no hanging about for months while they mature!
Growing your own herbs will encourage you to be more creative with your cooking and perhaps explore other ways to be inventive with herbs. Try drying any surplus for use in the kitchen through the winter months – even when dried, their flavour will be more authentic and intense than shop-bought herbs. You can even mix the dried leaves together as an aromatic pot pourri for your home.
Planting herbs is also a great way to get the kids involved in gardening – and they will enjoy eating the results!
