When to Sow and Harvest Herbs in Your Garden
The best thing about moving from our flat in the centre of Liverpool to our newly our purchased house in the country is having a garden. It’s been fantastic seeing Dexter having the space to play outdoors and we’ve enjoyed treating him to lots of garden toys for him to play with when the sun comes out.
Since moving in with Neil seven years ago, I’ve never had to concern myself with tending a garden, but I’ve found myself more and more interested in learning how to grow my own produce in recent months. We’ve invested in a lot of garden equipment of late to create a garden that functions as a place where we can grow plants and flowers as well as a safe space for Dexter to play.
One of the easiest plants to grow is herbs. We love using herbs on our food. No Italian dish is complete without a sprinkle of fresh basil and thyme is perfect in our favourite Mexican dishes, but when is best to start growing each herb? This handy infographic from Trago shows you when best to sow and when best to harvest a wide range of herbs and although I may have missed the boat for basil for this year, I am going to get cracking ASAP for Dill!
