CHIVES - An extremely useful cut garden herb that grows year after year with lilac or blush decorative pom pom flowers. Eat often to detoxify the body and boost skin health while increasing the flavour of your pizzas. Plural.
BASIL - If you are growing tomatoes you'd better plant a basil or two for an award winning bruschetta and pesto combination. Get that quintessential Italian taste with this easy to grow herb. All the benefits minus the international airfares
MINT - So easy to grow that it's probably best contained to a pot. Goes wild when it's given a sideways glance and kept hydrated. Beautiful bright green leaves great for homemade beauty remedies, decorating desserts or pina coladas. Or all three at ones if you're a multi tanker!
OREGANO - An easy to grow herb that will add flare to your lamb, egg and vegetable dishes. Plant once and harvest for years! Enjoy the scented leaves, attractive white flowers and smug feeling of satisfaction.
THYME - So many puns. So little thyme. Grow for flavouring soups, stews, stuffing and beef dishes. Simple to grow in dry sunny spots; it will reward you by providing a weed suppressing ground cover and attractive delicate flowers. Thyme after thyme.
PARSLEY - The sophisticated palatable flat leaf kind; not the hard curly leaf variety that leaves dark green shreds between your teeth. Best planted in a sunny position near your kitchen door for easy pickings.
CORIANDER - The herb that divides the population. You either lathe or love it and considering you've picked up this packet you are most likely the latter. Unless you are about to throw it in the fire (don't!). A quick and easy grow with a short life but hey - that flavour is worth it. Diamonds are a forever. Coriander plants aren't.
