Best Herbs to Grow in Your Garden

Growing herbs in your garden is the best way to ensure the freshness of the produce. What are the best, most popular herbs that you can plant yourself? Here are a few of them…

Basil

With fresh aroma and spicy flavour, basil is one of the most versatile herbs for any kitchen conundrums. For optimum growth, sow basil seeds in a sunny spot with moist, well-drained soil.

 

Rosemary

The sharp-wafted rosemary not only adds freshness to your savory dishes, but they can also repel mosquitoes. Full-sun spot and frequent watering should help your rosemary grow optimally.

 

Chives

Chives are a great addition to a lot of dishes, thanks to its light, onion-y flavour. They can be grown indoors or with partial shades.

 

Sage

Sage is a great seasoning to ‘heavy’ food like sausages, omelettes and red meats. It requires sufficient sunlight and well-drained, slightly acidic soil.

 

Thyme

Other than seasoning main meals, thyme can also be added in tea. Grow thyme in a sunlight-rich spot.

 

Coriander/Cilantro

The unique, distinct taste of coriander makes it perfect for soups and biryani. Coriander only takes three to four weeks to harvest – maintain its growth by keeping it in full sun and deep soil.
