Growing herbs can be a sensory delight. There are culinary herbs, aromatic herbs and herbs that attract beneficial insects. But considering the high cost of fresh herbs why not grow your own? An OSU Extension Service Master Gardener will share the tips, techniques and plant recommendations for starting your own herb garden. Topics covered will be starting your beds, planting times, maintenance and harvesting. OSU Extension Service recommended varieties will also be shared.
