Herb gardens are fun. Herbs add spice to your food, your health and hopefully to your life too!
Nothing beats the feeling of coming back home after a long day and just resting in your beautiful herb garden with the smell of lavender and sage in the air; perhaps sipping on a soothing mint tea. It can soon get addictive; and you will find that the garden has become a whole new part of you.
There are so many reasons why you should start a herb garden. If you have ever wondered why on earth some people would like to toil away hours of their free time under the sun, tending to their precious garden just for a few old herbs, you should check out the 7 reasons listed here. Hopefully, they should help you make up your mind.
1. The herbs!
The herbs themselves are more than reason enough to start herb gardening right away. You could grow a fantastic herb garden with a wide array of herbs and spices to make any gardener envious. Herbs like thyme, mint and lemongrass will give you all the produce you need to make the tastiest exotic foods, while the beautiful smelling lavender and anise hyssop can give your garden and home a lovely smell all year round.
2. They are low maintenance
Let’s face it. The real reason many people with the available space don’t grow a gardening hobby is because they are intimidated by how much labor they would have to put in. Indeed, gardening can be a harrowing task, with many factors to be addressed throughout the year – shading for young plants, regular fertilizing, uprooting weeds, and of course the regular watering dilemma.
With herbs, which are hardy plants passionate of life, you don’t have to worry much about maintenance. Eventually, they fend for themselves just well enough, and all you really have to do is give a checkup once in a while for insects, and water regularly. Little labor for the beautiful herbs you are going to love and enjoy all year round!
3. Herbs are classy
Some people have rose gardens. Some choose an assortment of flower plants. Some grow decorative shrubs. And some, of course are really talented with the green vegetables.
But let’s face it, a herb garden is unique. Not many people even think of them; and you might actually be the only person in town with an actual herb garden, growing beautiful and rare herbs that you can gift to your neighbors, use in your own cooking for some truly exotic flavors, or add to your potpourri to make your home smell like an island paradise.
4. They look great
Herbs have the potential to look really beautiful. Herbs like lavender and nepeta, with their beautiful little violet flowers, and Artemisia, with their beautiful foliage, can really add to your garden’s charms.
5. They are inexpensive
Herbs can be some of the cheapest plants you can add to your garden. They also grow really fast, and very soon, you will be growing more than you can even keep in your garden. They also require very little fertilizer, and are hardy plants that don’t get sick very much.
6. The scent…
People who look for a nice smelling garden often invest a lot of time and effort into flower plants like the rose, jasmine and the other sweet smelling flowers. But the herbs can, without a doubt, give you the best smelling garden in the neighborhood. Herbs like lavender, Artemisia and scented geraniums smell really beautiful without being overpowering, and can really give you the spiritual uplift that you seek after a long day or week of work.
7. Great for health
Herbs have always been known to be great for health, with well researched antioxidant properties and provide the trace vitamins and essential oils required to give you the completely healthy lifestyle. What better way to address these needs than by consuming herbs you grew with your own hands?
There are plenty of reasons to grow an herb garden. All you need to do is go ahead and do it.
