Wouldn’t it be great to skip the grocery store and simply head to your backyard for the herbs you use most frequently? Great news – it’s the perfect time of year to turn your backyard into an edible garden by planting some of the most popular herbs described below!

Is it just us or does fresh basil from the store go bad super quickly? Remedy that problem with simply taking a trip to your own garden whenever a recipe calls for this useful herb.

Not only does lavender smell amazing, but this herb is very drought-tolerant and resilient. Add it to your DIY cocktails or use it as a natural fragrant in your home.

Thyme is one of the easiest herbs to grow and one of the most frequently used in recipes. This low-maintenance herb simply needs sun, good drainage and not too much water.

Oregano is another very useful herb and one that is easy to plant and maintain. Similar to Thyme, this herb simply needs sun and good drainage.

Mint grows quickly and can get out of hand, but you’ll never get tired of its refreshing smell and taste! We suggest growing it in a pot or container rather than directly in your garden bed.

Resilient in both warm and freezing temperatures, Rosemary grows well in containers and can be brought inside if necessary. You’ll feel like you’re in the Tuscan countryside with one whiff of its wonderful aroma!

If you’re in a warm climate, you can enjoy Parsley year-round. Gardeners in colder climates can still enjoy this popular crop, but in the summertime. Pick a shady shot and enjoy the fresh taste and scent of this useful herb.
