Home & Garden
What’s your favorite herb to cook grow and cook with?
Chive do best in full sun to part shade so select and area that provides a little of both. Chives are very low maintenance and can be divided and turned into multiple plants when they get to big for your pot. Keep them harvested to promote growth and always use fresh for best flavor.
Basil does best when set out in plenty of sunlight, but make sure it's well watered during hot spring and summer days. Keep your basil plant productive by always harvesting it - snip away leaves, stems and flower buds frequently to promote growth. Basil can be used fresh in marinades,
Cilantro is probably my second most used herb (next to basil) that I grow. It is wonderful fresh in salsa and marinades. Cilantro grows best in cooler weather, in full to part sun. Make sure its soil is well drained.
When you are selecting your parsley seeds or plants to grow in your herb garden, be sure to look for flat leaf parsley for best flavor. I find parsley to be low maintenance and easy to grow in sun or part shade. I tend to harvest it frequently by snipping of entire stems and store it
Thyme makes a wonderful addition to any herb garden because it's so easy to take care of and can be used in so many ways in the kitchen. Plant in full sun and keep it well drained for best results. When harvesting, snip entire sprigs and take leaves of stems by gently running your fingers.
