How to Grow Herbs

There are a lot of reasons to add some herbs to your vegetable garden They are wonderful in cooking and tend to attract the right kinds of insects into your vegetable garden while keeping some of the nastier ones out. They also help with weed control by out competing the majority of weed species.

There are products available that make planting herbs such as basil easy for container gardeners, whether they’re raised inside or outside.
