I've been growing herbs for years. One of the easiest, cheapest and healthiest ways to give flavour to recipes is through adding fresh herbs to the dish. Parsley and basil are two herbs that I've done particularly well by growing them at home. In the summer months basil is a must for any tomato based recipes whether it be cooked sauces or freshly picked tomatoes to be used in a salad. Parsley meanwhile is fantastic for using as a quick garnish either as whole bunches or chopped up finely.
