All chefs know that the secret to good food is fresh herbs. Whether you are a chef or just someone who appreciates the flavor of fresh, organic herbs, having an herb garden is becoming an essential part of every home environment. In addition to culinary uses, herbs are also grown for a myriad of reasons such as natural remedies, fragrance, beauty, to dye textiles, for attracting pollinators and even to repel other insects. Some herbs are even grown for spiritual ceremonies and rituals. While there are many uses for herbs, growing your own herbs is something that everyone should incorporate into their home environment. It is economic, good for the environment and good for your health!
