Most herbs are fairly easy to grow but add a lot to a garden or recipe. Herbs can be planted as a mixed border, between annuals and perennials or as they were traditionally grown -- in gardens devoted to herbs alone. Try planting herbs in container pots and bring them in the house for a winter treat.

It's always the herbs that seem to be the "gourmet touch" when it comes to good food. The flavours and aromas that fresh herbs add to meals is unbeatable!  The interesting part is their relationship with other plants in the gardens: their companion qualities for creating beneficial insect habitat, deterring the bad bugs,  and "bringing out the best" of neighbouring crops.
