If you could grow just one herb, what would it be? Pick 3 herbs for beginners.


There is no point in growing tomatoes if you don't grow basil. What are the herbs you grow to eat?

    I've only started growing garlic in the past few years. Howie, it was a surprise to me how easy it is to grow. We could never limit ourselves to just three, could we? Thank you.

    Are you growing all these now? You can teach us a lot about medicinal herbs. How about a hub?

    I like your choices. It seems like fresh summer herbs just invite Mediterranean cuisine.

    I think those are great choices. I have 4 kinds of mint and it would be hard to give any of them up. Thanks for you advice.

    I add mint to my tea, and use it in some recipes, but never just simple mint tea. I like your pick because it is so versatile. Great Suggestion.

    Once folks are at your level of expertise, a limit of three is just wrong. sallieannluvslife, are your herbs gown in an herb garden or alongside vegetables and flowers?

    I can see sticking to one herb would be a tough decision for you too. I can't even limit myself to one kind of basil. Thank you for your response, fellow herb gardener.

    I love parsley. It wouldn't be summer without tabouli. Thank you.

    Those perfect purple chive blooms are the surest sign of spring in my garden. And I love making chive herb vinegar. Thank you.

    Great suggestions. Everything tastes better when these herbs are fresh from the garden.
