If you’re considering stirring up some home cooked meals in your modern kitchen, what better way to do this than by using your own, freshly picked herbs—right from your own Italian herb garden! Italian food has some of the world’s yummiest herbs and some common tasty Italian herbs you may wish to grow include:
Garlic being one of the most common herbs added to Italian cooking, it would be only natural to have garlic as a part of your Italian herb garden. Garlic is very low maintenance and can be planted in just about any garden and then be frozen to use at a later time. Rosemary is an herb that actually has added benefits to being a part of your herb garden, as it grows into a large shrub that sprouts small blue flowers that attract bees. Rosemary is sensitive to the colder weather though, so make sure that your garden environment is capable of supporting rosemary. Basil is another commonly used herb found in many Italian recipes and also has advantages to other vegetables you may grow in your garden, such as peppers or tomatoes, as it can enhance flavors if grown next to each other. Basil is also known to help keep flies away.
Whatever herbs you decide to add to your Italian Herb Garden, between the enhanced natural flavors of the herbs added to your cooking to the fresh aroma the herbs will add to any room and the overall look and feel of your kitchen, you are certain to fall in love with your garden!
