Lush Herb Gardens Ideas

Southern Living offers some ideas for a summer herb garden. Get your hands dirty and have fun!!

Basil Planter

The classic herb of summer, basil brings fragrance, beauty, and flavor to any garden. Used fresh, it makes delicious pesto's and is an ideal partner for homegrown, fresh, juicy tomatoes. Added bonus, it thrives in the South with little care!

Basil and Garlic Chive Container Garden

Don't let a lack of space or geography keep you from planting. Herbs love growing in containers. Start by planting one or two pots of basil and garlic chives to grow your confidence, and then go from there.

Herb Topiary

Update a container with the elegant twist of an herb topiary. Plant it in a galvanized pail combined with single herbs in tiny terra-cotta pots. Not only will the display be party-ready, but also you'll have fresh herbs at your fingertips.

Cilantro, Parsley, and Chives Garden

Transplants of cilantro, parsley, and chives are at their best in late winter months, both in containers and in the ground. Plant them in a shallow box, as pictured, and use them as an outdoor centerpiece.

Coriander, Rosemary, and Thyme Garden

Plant a tiny kitchen garden in one pot. Fragrance and flavor are contained in this one display of coriander, rosemary, and thyme.
