Kitchen herbs

We’re planning the more common kitchen herbs in raised beds close to the kitchen, while the more exotic stuff will be grown in the formal garden and/or agricultural part of the plot. Rosemary and sage are already established:

  • Basil
  • Coriander
  • Thyme
  • Sorrel
  • Chives
  • Lemon balm
  • Oregano
  • Parsley (both types)
  • Mint (in its own container because it’s a thug)
  • Dill
