I started growing herbs when we lived in Alexandria (around 1986) and cannot imagine not having an herb garden in the summer. Not only do I grow parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (French*, lime*, German), I’ve also planted basil (plain, holy*, Thai), cilantro, dill, lavender, bay, tarragon (French*, Mexican), chives*, oregano*.

Nice! I end up with a line up of pots on my bench, and each year think I need a herb garden.
They are also a true love of mine. I’m wondering why you don’t have chives and oregano though: they’re perennials and so low maintenance.
Helen, I don’t like fresh oregano. As for chives, I don’t use them much.
This is Tim’s love too!
