Hello hello to all the horticulturalists out there. I am trying to start a little herb garden for your basic herbs so that when I cook I can get them fresh! . I'm sure you all can reflect on the difference in taste when using fresh herbs vs the packaged stuff. I used to landscape for 5 years but now I'd like to grow my own herbs as I love to cook. I'm hoping you all will be able to share advice with me as to getting started and maintaining the herb garden!

Hello to you, too! I'm a big fan of herbs. I like how easy they are to grow and how nice they make the garden look. I use them as edging in front of my roses. Now I have to learn how to cook with them! I'm always pinching off parts of my thyme, but most of my herbs I never touch. I used some garlic chives in a salad last night but never cut any at all last year!

I'm a NYer too. Are you from the City or upstate?

Welcome to GG and I love my fresh herbs as well. One of my favorite tricks (that I finally get to do again this year!) is to plant parsley between my tomato's. It improves both of them!

My apt is in the city but the place I'm setting up this herb garden is in Westchester.
