Herbs and Spices can be some of the easiest plants to grow in your garden or containers. You can use them in cooking and preserving to add flavour, to create your own teas, jellies and relishes, or dry them for winter use. Herbs can also be used as natural remedies for numerous health concerns, from headaches to high blood sugar, sore throat to a good night's sleep. You can add your favourite fragrances and colours to homemade soaps, potpourris, scented bath tonics, wreaths and sachets to freshen your clothes or keep those pesky moths away!
The Greenery Garden Centre in Kelowna grows a large variety of herbs and spices including: many different basils, oregano, rosemary, thyme, mint, lavender, parsley, chives, bay leaf, cilantro and dill.
You can grow herbs in your garden in many different ways:
grow them in a dedicated herb garden
add them in with annuals or perennials in your beds and borders
plant up planters or larger pots with your favourite tastes and scents
use window and balcony boxes or hanging baskets
position herbs as border plants along walkways as they are not only useful but also quite decorative
