Your own kitchen garden needs what you never knew it needed: your own herb garden! Along with the usual range of herbs, more exotic herbs and aromatic plants have become fashionable, such as mountain mints, lemon basil, or bergamot and thyme. Cultivating these shouldn’t be more challenging than growing the more ordinary herbs, so don’t be afraid to experiment with them! These exotic plants and herbs can give meals an intense taste that you won’t be able to forget. Just imagine a fresh, minty salad dressing, lamb shanks marinated in ground sage or a refreshing lemon basil lemonade – and all this is coming from your own, organic and clean herb garden.
The more exotic batch of herbs are making their way to gardening shops – take a look if you’d like to impress your family, friends and loved ones with new flavors and aromas. You can get ready-made herb soil mixes for the healthy growth and life of your herbs. And they will be grateful: bathing your home in their magical fragrances. When winter comes, just wrap them in a textil bag to keep their scent, aroma and color, without getting them dirty. How many herbs do YOU have in your herb garden?
