Fresh herbs like oregano, basil, sage and rosemary are used to brighten all kinds of recipes, but buying them in the grocery store can get expensive.
Growing herbs yourself saves money, and allows you to clip herbs as you need them, instead of buying more than you need.
Three tips for growing them:
– Create a window garden by purchasing a hanging box or a container to attach to your windowsill. This ensures ample sunlight.
– Buy small plants from supermarkets or gardening centers to avoid the hassle of growing plants from scratch.
– Preserve leftover clipped herbs by drying or freezing them.
