    Default What are your must-have fresh herbs?

    I'm getting pretty tired of spending a fortune on bunches of herbs - that I often forget to buy anyway when trying something new.

    So I thought, I'm going to make myself a herb garden.

    So I know I'll get chives and parsely - but what are your other must-have fresh herbs?

    I MUST have chives, parsely, rosemary, and thyme.
    In warmer weather I grow basil as well.

    I've grown oregano but never really used it. I have tried numerous times to grow dill because I would use that but the snails devour it every time. If I liked coriander I would grow that because alot of recipes ask for fresh coriander leaves.

    HTH!

    continental parsley, chives, sage, oregano, thyme, basil over warmer months, coriander (it goes to seed on me but when a punnet is only a bit more than a bunch it makes sense) was thinking of lemon thyme, and some vietnamese mint. normal mint spreads too easily, so if you want that put it in a pot.

    I have lemongrass, thyme (regular and lemon), chives, garlic chives, rosemary, bay tree, oregano, sage (don't use it often), parsley, coriander, basil (summer only), mint. Of these, bay tree, rosemary, thyme, parsley, coriander and mint are essential as they are used a lot. Basil is fantastic in summer. Lemongrass is great to have when I have a hankerin' and it's easy to grow. Chives and garlic chives tend to get nibbled by onion aphid, so have never really got established here.
    Parsley and coriander are now a bit feral in the garden because of self-sewing, but I love that.

    Rosemary is my 'must'. Basil is great but I don't always have it.
