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…
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.
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 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 is a great seasoning to ‘heavy’ food like sausages, omelettes and red meats. It requires sufficient sunlight and well-drained, slightly acidic soil.
Other than seasoning main meals, thyme can also be added in tea. Grow thyme in a sunlight-rich spot.
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.
