For the most part, herbs are undemanding. They grow easily and need little looking after, making them ideal for hectic lifestyles and inexperienced gardeners alike.
If you are an absolute beginner start with a few large pots or a window box. Try parsley, chives, thyme, and lavender. These herbs are available from any good herb nursery or garden center. Plant them in good compost, water well and place in a sunny spot.
Once your green fingers have developed, add sage, rosemary, garlic, lemon balm, basil, chili, chamomile, marjoram and savory to your collection. These herbs can all be grown in pots or in the garden. Garlic would do best in a large window box, which gives the bulbs room to develop.
