Herbs are probably the most popular and intriguing group of plants in existence. Undoubtedly, the explanation for this is that over the centuries herbs have been used in so many different ways. They flavor our foods, are used in scents for home and body, decorate our gardens, and cure our illnesses.
Herbs give you a triple bang for your hard-earned dollar...not only do they make everything smell and taste good, they can be very attractive too. Lavender is a well-known example of a herb used as a landscaping feature.
You don't need a garden plot to keep yourself supplied with fresh herbs all summer long. A sunny location, some soil, pots and a bit of care can turn a balcony into your own private grocery store. Your herb garden will be a source of fragrant, delicious seasonings for your favorite meals. Plant popular herbs in your garden like basil, thyme, and dill, and enjoy some fresh-from-the-earth taste at your dinner table.
