How to grow herbs
Herbs such as basil, oregano, chives and rosemary are easy to grow at home, and are the perfect way to boost the flavour of a salad. Your fresh herbs will taste better than expensive packaged varieties, so what are you waiting for?
Most herbs thrive in full sun in a sheltered position.
You can grow herbs indoors on the windowsill, in pots outdoors or straight in the ground. Sow seeds of annual herbs like basil and coriander every couple of weeks to provide you with fresh leaves throughout summer.
Plant perennial herbs such as oregano, rosemary, chives and mint in pots or in the ground and harvest the leaves as and when you need them.
