All you need is one or two square metres in your garden or a few pots or containers on your balcony or patio for a herb garden. With all the different shapes, colours, textures and fragrances of flowers and foliage available, it's easy to produce a variety of effects. A garden full of aromatic plants is a treat for the senses of sight, touch, taste and smell.
Which herbs you decide to grow will depend, among other considerations, on how much space you have available, how much sun the site receives and, of course, your own tastes. Some plants are especially recommended, however. These include chives, chervil, tarragon, lovage, marjoram, basil, oregano, thyme, parsley, savory and sage, all of which can be grown in pots.
