Once you start growing and using fresh herbs from your garden you will fall in love with them too!

They are delicious, and full of vitamins and minerals. They also have medicinal and therapeutic properties. They are wonderful in oils, vinegars, jams, teas, syrups, and honey and butter recipes.

Herbs also produce pretty flowers that are commonly used in bouquets, sachets, soaps, and scented bath oils. 

Growing herbs successfully depends on your knowledge of each herb. Do your homework; some are hard to grow from seed, some are perennial, some are biennial, and some are annual. Try experimenting with one or two types at a time and figure out what you like best.

Check out a few of my favorite herbs to learn their growing habits and uses.

    I'm a southern garden girl. Mason jars, aprons, vintage quilts, summer porches, sweet tea, and sunflowers are a few of my favorite things.
