Planting herbs together that work together, need the same requirements, etc., and enjoy the aromatic results!
Herbs are used for cooking, cleaning, and even for health reasons. For centuries, plants were the only medicine we had. People tended to their plants very carefully.
Planting herbs for cooking is a great way to not only boost your kitchen creativity but also to get healthy.
Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary, oregano, sage, thyme, marjoram, and lavender can be planted together due to their similar soil and climate needs.
Basil, cilantro, tarragon, and parsley can be planted together because they prefer more moisture in their soil compared to Mediterranean herbs.
Any herb in the mint family should be planted together with other mints or by themselves. The mint family includes peppermint, spearmint, catmint, orange mint, and lemon balm.
If you have a salad garden or other type of garden, consider planting herbs as companion plants for your regular garden.
