More Info on Growing Herbs

Some of the above are annuals, but there are quite a few perennial herbs like rosemary, chives, thyme, mint and fennel. These will supply you with fresh tasty leaves and seeds year after year, though it's a good idea to renew or divide your plants every 3-4 years as they can get woody after time.

There are a few ways of growing them...

  • Growing from seeds
  • Growing in containers
  • Growing from cuttings
  • Layering
  • Root division
  • Buying young herb garden plants

Another good thing when it comes to the majority of herbs and spices, they're fairly disease and pest resistant, which if you're just starting out, is another thing you don't have to worry about.
