Whether you have a huge garden or a little balcony, Growing herbs at home means you will always have a good supply to add to your recipes when you need it. Herbs such as rosemary, sage and thyme are hardy enough to keep you going throughout the year. Oregano and mint tend to prefer the spring and summer months. I love being able to head out into the garden to pick big wads of fresh herbs which go great in marinades, dressings and salads. More than anything it saves on buying packs from the supermarket which can be an extremely expensive habit to get into.
