Plant of the Week: Herbs
A generous supply of fresh herbs from the kitchen garden is, if anything, even more satisfying than vegetables. Often low-maintenance perennials, herbs are unstintingly prolific, providing as much as you can pick throughout the season to lend their spicy scents to your food.
Mediterranean herbs like rosemary, thyme, sage and marjoram need a hot, dry spot, but there are plenty of other herbs like parsley, mint and fennel which grow anywhere so don't worry if your garden isn't a sun trap. Sow generous containers of annual herbs, too, such as coriander, basil and parsley for aromatic greenery to use in salads and flavourings all year round.
Give alpine plants on the rockery ; especially spring-flowering types ; a top-dressing of grit. Choose a type of grit that looks appropriate to the colour of the rock on your rockery. A ‘mulch' of grit will show off the plants' diminutive blooms. And to stop mud splashing up on to the leaves, flowers and stems, and possible causing plants to rot, make sure you tuck some grit under and around the plants.
