Three Easy Herbs to Grow This Season

Start with these three easy herbs to grow. Fresh herbs make all the difference in flavoring delicious recipes. Having fresh herbs on hand to cook with can get very expensive if you are buying them individually which is why it is so beneficial to grow your own.

Growing herbs is a great way to get started gardening. Some herbs start very easily from seeds which is the most inexpensive method – but it does take patience. You can grow herbs indoors and outdoors. I have some herbs in pots, some in a wooden box I re purposed, and some in the ground. If there are certain herbs that you cook with often it would be a great idea to start with those herbs. In my experience, I have found these three are easy herbs to grow and are useful in the kitchen.


Basil is an herb that I used very often because I love it. It is great in salads, marinara sauce, or in a glass of iced tea. Basil is high in vitamin K which is needed for blood coagulation – very important for pregnant women. It also contains some anti-bacterial properties. Basil can be grown indoors and outdoors. Basil likes to be pruned so if you pick leaves to use often your plant will do well. If you grow a lot of basil, you can make this amazing Basil Pesto Recipe.


Rosemary is a very hearty plant and is easy to keep alive. It is a versatile herb because it pairs well with many foods. It is also packed with health benefits like it's anti-inflammatory properties, it's believed ability to improve memory, boost your mood, and improve immune function. Rosemary grows well with little maintenance and is easily grown from cuttings. I started several plants this year from cuttings of a rosemary plant and almost all have survived. Planting rosemary may also help keep pests out of your vegetable garden. Grow rosemary as a perimeter around your vegetables or as a companion plant to help keep out unwanted guests in your vegetable garden.


Fresh mint is so delicious and smells amazing. Add a few mint leaves to your iced tea or other cold drinks for a refreshing flavor. It is also great in smoothies. Mint is a helpful digestive aid and can help to soothe headaches. If you don't want mint to take over your garden, it's best to plant it in a pot or in a small area. Mint is so easy to grow because it spreads a lot. You can even use your fresh mint to make this non-toxic household cleaning spray.

Cooking with fresh herbs is so delicious and has some great health benefits. Since the cost of fresh herbs is high, it might seem difficult to keep them in the house. Growing your own herbs is the best way to get delicious fresh herbs into your cooking without spending a fortune. It is hard to find a variety of herbs that are organically grown so when you grow your own you can control the growing conditions.
