It’s time to hit the garden, and this week I want to talk about the value of growing herbs. The great thing about herbs–besides their incredible culinary uses–is that they are super easy to maintain and can be grown in pots in the smallest gardens. I’ve even grown them on apartment balconies. Below I’ve listed some of my favorite books about growing herbs, as well as a list of plants that have been proven to be the easiest to grow, even for inexperienced gardeners.

The list of herbs is by no means complete, just some of the herbs that I grow every year with great success despite my short growing season.

I have also included links to one of my favorite online nurseries so you can read about each of these herbs and learn all of their culinary and homeopathic uses. I am not an affiliate of Mountain Valley Growers and receive no referral money from them. I just added the links for informational purposes only. And I did the same with my favorite herb gardening books below. I am not an Amazon affiliate, but I have provided links so you can learn more about my favorite resources.

As the days get warmer and warmer, I wish you all great success out in the garden. Even if you’ve never grown anything in your life, try growing some basil or rosemary on the kitchen counter. Once you start using fresh herbs in your summer recipes, you’ll never want to go back to dried!

Easiest Herbs to Grow in Small Spaces

For each type of herb, there are many different varieties that are all easy to grow. If you have the space, be creative and try something new like purple sage or pineapple mint! The most challenging herb on the list is Bay because it can sometimes be hard to find and they tend to be expensive. But if you can find them, they’re worth growing!
