5 Easy-To-Grow Herbs To Spice Up Your Garden
Herbs are a great way of sprucing up your garden, they’re great to cook with, can be used for indoor aromatherapy among many other things. They’re also very easy to upkeep and maintain.
Here are five of the easiest herbs that you can grow in your garden or allotment.
Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow because it can survive almost any weather condition, even snowy or very dry weather. Still, it’s better to keep your mint in a cool place with lots of sunlight and to water it regularly. Seeds for common mint can be found just about anywhere.
Mint is great on dishes and to add to the aroma of a room. It’s also great crushed up and put in a tea strainer for crisp, authentic mint tea.
Thyme is a herb that you’ll need to water regularly for the first couple months, but after that – let it make its own way! Thyme is a herb that is actually suited to somewhat harsher conditions, it’s not a delicate plant at all.
Grow thyme to add to chicken and meat dishes, it’s a staple of the Mediterranean cuisine.
Mexican Marigold is a slightly more difficult herb to find. With it’s sunny and beautiful gold and orange colour, this decadent herb may first appear to be just a pretty clump of flowers. But these flowers are edible and have a fresh cucumber-like taste to them.
They’re great in summery drinks and also to brighten up a room or plot.
If you’re already growing thyme, you might as well throw in some oregano. The needs of thyme and oregano are practically identical, although oregano may need to be upkept regularly for the first few months of planting, it can be left alone to fend for itself afterwards.
Oregano is a staple in many classic Italian dishes, put it on your pasta dishes to add flavour, or as a garnish to any savoury appetizers.
Coriander is a herb that is used widely in many recipes, it’s always handy to have some of your own growing. Coriander typically flourishes better in the garden rather than a plant pot next to the windowsill. However, at first the seeds sprout better in a glass of tepid water. Once sprouted, move them to the garden.
Coriander is a great addition to the kitchen of any Mexican food-lover. No guacamole is complete without a pinch of coriander.
