Herbs are great plants for beginners and seasoned gardeners alike. Not overly fussy, just good light and sufficient water. Perfect in a rooftop garden, bright window box, or a simple pot of basil by a kitchen window. Of course they can highlight your culinary skills too! Are you a person who can barely boil water for pasta? Well, if you can get through that part, chop some fresh herbs, add them to any dish and Voila! -you've gone from line cook to gourmet chef!
