Spring is finally here! Now is a good time to plant fresh herbs and spices. You could plant spices like basil, oregano, or chives from seeds, or you could buy the seedlings from a plant nursery. Herbs like oregano, mint, and chives come up year after year. Basil is an annual plant, so it needs to be planted each year. Herbs can add a decorative touch to your garden or planter, a pleasant fragrance, and will be ready at a moments notice when you want a sprig or a few leaves for the dishes you create.
