I planted some herbs today. I bought things we eat.
Oregano and Basil for Greek and Italian foods.
Garlic for Italian, Mexican, Chinese food.
I would buy more if I could think of a reason why.
I like your idea about growing basil elsewhere. I think I'll stick my basil in the veg garden and keep the herb garden for perennials and other singletons.rainbowgardener wrote:BonneFemme - it was a good question about growing herbs together.
The basil I put other places, because 1) it's an annual, unlike all of the above perennial herbs and 2) I really do want it to thrive, so try to give it more ideal conditions.
And the chive flowers are pretty AND tasty in salads. I wish they bloomed more than once.Adrien wrote:How about chives? Chives are a popular herb in the states, chive leaves can be used, mixed with sour cream, cream cheese or butter, on top of potatoes, in salads, soups, sauces and sandwiches. I grow them every year...
