A balanced garden needs to not only be bursting with color and texture, but appeal to one’s sense of smell as well. That is why no backyard garden is complete without the uplifting fragrance of an herb garden. Herbs can certainly be enjoyed in the garden, but are also useful in herbal remedies, pest control, and the culinary arts.
For having so many attributes, herbs are incredibly easy to grow and maintain. The key to maximum enjoyment of your herb garden is to grow the herbs you will most likely use.
Wilson's Garden Center has hundreds of kinds of herbs to choose from, and it is a treat to select the ones that you will plant.
The best time to plant your herb garden is in May after the frost date. Enjoy them in pots or plant directly out into the garden. It only takes one spring afternoon to create your own small, no-fuss, steady supply of kitchen-ready herbs.
“As for rosemary, I let it run all over my garden walls, not only because my bees love it but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance and to friendship, whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language.”
- Sir Thomas More (1478-1535)
