Planting an herb garden or container is a great way to expand your garden. Herbs are not only edible but, also provide fragrance and interest in your garden. Many herbs like mint, chives, oregano, sage and thyme are perennials so you only have to plant them once. Tender herbs like basil, rosemary and marjoram need to be planted each season. With a little planning, you will be able to step out into your garden to cut fresh herbs and turn ordinary into gourmet.
