Herbs R-Z

The practice of utilizing medicinal and culinary herbs for their benefits predates written human history. An effective herb garden does not require much space and can be grown on a small garden plot. Many do well in window boxes and containers, and some can even be grown in the shade or indoors. Your herb garden will attract and support pollinators, other small animals, and microorganisms. Many varieties can be used to make tinctures, salves, and oils for medicinal use. Culinary herbs, when added to food, not only add flavor but impart nutritional benefits, too.
