Planting Your Herb Garden

Hi everyone! 

The weather may be hot and humid.  During the early morning and late afternoon hours when the weather is the coolest part of the day you can plant a culinary herb garden.  A selection of fresh culinary herbs that you can use for all your cooking needs.  Bay, Chives, Dill, Thyme, Basil, Oregano, Sage, Mint and Tarragon.  Plant a small plot area near your kitchen for easy access.  If you do not want to plant a plot than set your herb containers in a full sun area.    View our links in my Herbs en' Route website and contact them for helpful garden planting ideas or plant material selections.  








More Than Just A Culinary Herb

More Than Just A Culinary Herb 

Herbs en' Route Landscape Suggestions  

Make the most of a large or small outdoor area by using culinary herbs in your landscape.  By combining herbs with foliage you will create contrast and color.

The herb Lavender, blooms a purple color flower and can grow in a dry, rocky, sunny location.

Use a perennial aromatic foliage of Lemon Thyme or  Oregano in a landscape.  Cut them back in late Fall and overwinter them with a bark mulch or straw.  Next Spring you will see re-growth of new foliage.

 A stronger lemon scent, much more tender perennial is Lemon Verbena. Takes sun or partial shade.

 Create more into your landscape.  Use all the wonderful variety of herbs.
