Even if you pair fresh herbs with everything you cook, you’ll likely still have some left over. Rather than let all your hard work go to waste, you can preserve your herbs to use all year long
The point of pruning is not to haphazardly hack off pieces of your plant. The goal is to encourage your plants to grow more and in a better shape.
Herbs are also great introduction into the world of backyard gardening. If you’re totally new, or don’t know where to start, I think herbs are a great first step. It’s easy to get carried away and buy every herb in sight. But, give a little bit of thought to the herbs you use most often, and then buy those.
