Herbs are a great way to give your lawn some flavor
Grow some peppers, scallions, and other spices to add some heat to your life. Herbs have been used for centuries in the kitchen and as a source of the aroma. Herbs provide us with summer’s freshest ingredients for cooking, but their leaves and flowers also bring visual interest and aroma to the garden. They are wonderful for a sensory flower bed, a space created to engage the senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. Herbs are quite versatile and may be grown in several different settings. The majority of the herbs used in cooking originate in the Mediterranean and thrive in the region’s mild climate and well-drained soils.

Once established, many of them can withstand periods of drought, and very few are susceptible to pests and diseases. Herbs seldom exceed 1 foot in height and are often much less. Plants need at least 6-8 hours of sunlight every day, so plan accordingly. There are three main types of herb plants: annuals, biennials, and perennials.
- Annual Herbs have a life cycle that lasts for only one year. Plant seeds in the springtime, either inside to avoid frost or outdoors after the danger has gone. Coriander, dill, garlic, and basil are a few of them.
- Herbs with a two-year life cycle are called biennials, and their first year is spent putting on foliage before they bloom, produce fruit, and die. Parsley and caraway are two examples of such herbs.
- After the annual dieback (or “die to the ground”) of winter, perennial herbs spring back to life the following spring. (Hint: if you want to grow mint but don’t want it to take over your garden, put it in a pot.)
- The caterpillar stage of several butterfly species depends on specific herbs for nourishment. The black flycatcher caterpillar feeds on parsley, cilantro, fenugreek seeds, and fennel, all of which are in the carrot family (Apiaceae). Consider letting those hungry caterpillars eat your herbs since large numbers of caterpillars on a particular plant seldom cause any harm to that plant. In exchange, your garden will attract more butterflies.
It is recommended that you bring some herbs inside for the winter in the fall, before the temperature dips below freezing. Herbs such as rosemary, bay, lemongrass, and scented geraniums are just a few examples of the kinds of herbs that may be successfully overwintered inside. Before buying any florist Butterworth plants, you should carefully examine them for any signs of disease or infestation caused by insects or other organisms. Only the hardiest of plants should be brought indoors. Maintaining them during the winter in the same manner as you would any other houseplant is recommended. The following year, when spring arrives once again, you may relocate them back outside to your garden and begin appreciating your very own herbs that you have grown from seed.
