Cathy Isom has a few ideas for you about the perfect plants for your patio herb garden. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.
Having the perfect patio herb garden can be accomplished with a little bit of planning. Start by deciding what types of herbs will meet your specific goals, such culinary, medicinal, aesthetic, or aromatic. Focus on plants that fit your purpose, as well as the space available, and grow well in pots or window boxes.
A patio garden is best suited to annuals and portable herbs. If you’re still not sure what you want, think about planting things you like to eat, such as Chives, Rosemary, Thyme, Basil, Cilantro, and Dill. And don’t forget the Cayenne Peppers.
For your healing herbs, try planting Yarrow, Calendula, Mint, Chamomile, and Lemon Balm. Edible fillers and fragrant flowers should also be considered. Nasturtiums, Pansies, Lemon Verbena, Lavender, and Borage.
Before long you will have everything you need to have the joy of fresh-seasoning, and a home-grown spice rack all year long.
