This is a great time of year to start thinking about creating your own herb garden or to re-invgorate your existing herb garden with new plants. It's too cold to start sowing seeds yet, but we can dream!
When you are thinking of planting a herb garden it is a great idea to think about what you really want your garden to look like and what function you want it to serve.
Do you want a garden that is full of beautiful aromatic herbs that will attract butterfiles and bees? Are you more interested in herbs that you can use for cooking? Or are you interested in a garden that will give you herbal medicines that you can harvest to stock your medicine chest or first aid kit?
Over the next couple of months here at Black Bear Herbswe will be talking about the planning and growing of a herb garden. In the meantime start dreaming. And to help you dream have a look at Richters seed catalogue. They are based in Ontario and have an outstanding collection of herbs - medicinal, culinary and olfactory beauties!
