What’s not to love about these useful, easy to grow, and downright beautiful plants? Perennial herbs like oregano, thyme, and sage live for years in the garden and can be harvested practically year round. Tender herbs like basil, dill, and cilantro are culinary powerhouses and are easy to grow too. Whether you have garden space to grow herbs, or want to grow them in pots on a deck or balcony, this class will help you learn how to choose, grow, harvest, and use several of the most popular, useful herbs.
