I love using fresh herbs from the garden in my cooking. I have a bed dedicated to herbs near my back door close to the kitchen and I also various pots of thyme and rosemary dotted around the garden. These woody herbs love good drainage, and with pots, I can put them in direct sunlight. Rosemary and thyme are particular favourites of mine and are used all year round. I try and get the plants as big and healthy as possible before the roast dinner season hits us.
Parsley is perfect for carbonara sauces, and basil super with pasta. A few fresh herbs make a huge difference to your cooking, and they are not difficult to grow.
