There are many herbs that can be planted once, and left to grow for many years. Here are my top 5 perennial herbs for a long lasting herb garden.
Lavender is used for everything from cooking, to healing. Try growing this elegant herb alongside your best flowers. Be sure to plant lavender with growing room, you will be shocked at how large the plants will be year after year. If you have had little luck growing lavender, try finding a specimen that is best suited in your garden zone. There are many. From shades of purple and blue, to white, lavender is truly a wonderful perennial herb.
Thyme is one of the herbs that will grow in any garden. It has varieties in both upright and trailing habits. Use thyme as a filler between your stones in a walkway. It offers the lovely scent when stepped on and can handle moderate traffic. Thyme grows well in areas that are too dry and poor for many other plants.
