Why Grow Your Own Herbs?

Author : Norm Stewart

Do you just love the taste of fresh herbs in your home cooking? Wouldn't it be great if you can have them right away every time you need them for a recipe? My advice: grow your own herbs, and experience the countless benefits. You see, conventional tablets are good but medicinal herbs can certainly be supplemental as well.

There are two ways to grow your own herbs at home - you can either have a huge herb garden in your backyard or you may grow your own herbs in a windowsill using window boxes and containers like pails if you’re living in a condo unit. You don't need to have a green thumb to pull it off -- growing herbs is fun and simple. All you'll ever need are a couple of tools, water, nice pots, sunlight, and your tender loving care, and you're all set!

To make things simpler for you, you can learn more about some model herb gardens which you can pattern from. Wherever you are, there are lots of herb growers and gardens out there.

I, for one, find a particular herb garden in London remarkable. It is called the Secret Garden which inspired the Bruce Springsteen song not just for its ornamentals but for its herbs as well. This is one garden that's worth visiting.

The Secret Garden boasts of over 5,000 herb species, including the Garden of World Medicine. The herbs are meticulously arranged in an inviting and attractive manner. It’s a wonder and an art in itself.

The herbs at the Secret Garden include herbs coming from all four corners of the world -- from the Maori of New Zealand and Australia, from the Native North America, Africa, India, Europe, and the Mediterranean. Of course, the best ones are the ones coming from the Mediterranean. Why? This is mainly because most Mediterranean herbs are found in North American dishes. Mediterranean herbs thrive well in North America, having the same climate -- not too humid, but not too cold as well. These herbs are great for the body too!

In order to grow an superb garden in your own home, you don't need to be an expert, or an artist. The essential thing is for you to have fun and enjoy testing your imagination and imagination. I know your garden will really turn out fantastic. Soon, you will unlock the power of your herb garden and use it for health, vitality and beauty. So grab your first herb kit, and get started planting. Keep in mind that experience is the best teacher, so don't be discouraged with minor setbacks. Just do everything with passion.
