Spring is in the air, and it is time to start thinking about your home herb garden. We have compiled some of our favorite, beginner friendly herbs to begin with!

  1. Mint: Mint is happiest in the shade. To prevent it from smothering your other herbs, plant mint in a pot by itself. Mint is a perennial which means it will come back every year! Use sliced mint leaves as a garnish, mix sprigs with spring peas, or even steep them in tea or lemonade.
  2. Basil: By mid-July, your basil should be big and prolific. Harvest early and often and cut the flowers off to produce more leaves. Basil goes well with just about anything: rounding out sauces, soups, salads, even pizza!
  3. Rosemary: Rosemary is easy, but a slow grower and thrives year-round. Mature plants enjoy full sun and well-drained soil. Steep in hot water for 10 minutes to make a soothing tea.
