TOP HERBS TO CONSIDER THIS SPRING
There are many herbs you could consider this Spring for your own Herb Garden but here are some top ones in my opinion.
Chamomile- A gentle calming herb. Daisy like flowers are used to make a relaxing teas. Flowers can be steeped in hot water either fresh or dried.
Basil – There are many kinds of basil. Why not try a different variety than the standard sweet basil. Lime basil, purple basil, holybasil, bush basil, columnar basil….
Thyme – not just great for cooking, it can be used as a medicinal tea and it’s a great pollinator plant!
Rosemary – a herb known for remembrance, a great medicinal herb for brain health.
Lavender – English lavender varieties can be grown in most places in Ontario as a perennial! It can be used in cooking, teas and the scent is known for its calming effects.
