Herb Garden Planters

Sean MurphyComment

Summer can be a difficult time to plant due to the high temperatures and often the lack of rain.  If you're having trouble keeping your garden from crisping up consider planting an herb garden! Most herbs are sunlight loving and will provide you with fragrance and fresh taste throughout the summer months.  I've always loved the idea of being able to flavor my food with herbs picked right from my own garden, but as I live in the city and don't exactly have a the space for a sprawling edible garden I've settled for a summer herb planter.  Here are some of my favorites:

Rosemary 

I lovvvvvvve the smell of rosemary roasted anything! We once had a customer request that we include rosemary in an arrangement she was sending to her sister- Rosemary! It was the first (though probably not the last)  time I was very tempted to snack on my bouquet.

Thyme

This is not the thyme for a bad pun! (seewhatIdidthere?) But did you know there are over 300 different varieties of thyme? The best varieties for cooking are English Thyme, golden thyme, German thyme and my personal favorite Lemon thyme.

Sage 

I like the subtle flavor sages provide, it has sort of a sweet smoky taste. Its also one of my absolute favorite colors.

We still have some adorable herb planters available. They make  really fantastic hostess gifts, so if you will be the guests of anyone with a passion for cooking this summer why not bring them something sweet? (or salty, or smoky, or bitter?)
