An herb garden is a wonderful way to combine your love of gardening, cooking and natural healing. Whether you have a large garden or a small balcony, growing herbs is simple and extremely rewarding. We’ve explored how to create your own herb garden and highlighted some herbs that are great for cooking and health support.

Choosing the right herbs

When choosing herbs for your nursery, consider herbs that you often use in the kitchen or that have medicinal properties. Some popular culinary and medicinal herbs include:
  • Basil: Ideal for sauces, salads and pesto.
  • Parsley: Universal use in soups, sauces and as a decoration.
  • Marjoram: Great for meat dishes and sauces.
  • Thyme: Suitable for soups, stews and seasoning meat.
  • Mint: Used in teas, cocktails and for refreshment.
  • Sage: Great for meat dishes and teas.

Kindergarten planning

Herbs can be grown in soil or in pots. If you have limited space, pots are a great option. Make sure the herbs are in a sunny spot and the soil is well drained. Also consider the height of the plants – plant taller plants in the back, lower plants in the front.

Herb care

Herbs are generally undemanding. Regular watering is important, but be careful not to overwater them. Most herbs like a sunny position, but some also thrive in partial shade. Regular pruning is also important as this encourages growth and abundance.

Harvesting and using herbs

Harvest herbs when their leaves are rich and healthy. It is best to harvest in the morning when their essential oils are most concentrated. Herbs can be used fresh or dried for later use.

Medicinal properties of herbs

Many herbs have medicinal properties. For example, mint can help with digestive problems, thyme has antibacterial properties, and sage can help with a sore throat. Herbs can be used to make teas, tinctures or for aromatherapy.

Creating your own herb garden is fun, easy and extremely rewarding. Not only will your dishes be tastier and more aromatic, but you will also have natural healing agents at your fingertips. Start small, experiment and you will soon discover the joy and satisfaction that comes with growing your own herbs.
