Why plant herb seeds?
If you're wondering why you should grow herb seeds, then let us convince you. For starters, it's easy to grow herb seeds in the UK, so even less confident gardeners have the incentive to give it a go.
Secondly, they smell wonderful, adding an earthy layer of scent to proceedings. When it comes to harvesting your grown herb seeds, you can start to have fun with them in the kitchen and add them to your favourite dishes. You may find they give you a whole new culinary level. Before you know it, you could be adding freshly grown rosemary to roast potatoes, basil to tomato-based pasta, or mint to your tea. On top of this, you often have a far greater choice when choosing herbs from seeds compared to fully grown herb plants in the supermarket.
Plus, when you buy herbs from seeds over a plant, you'll have more control over their growing environment, therefore helping them flourish. And if they've flourished so much that you don't know what to do with your abundance of herbs, you can always donate a bunch to your friends or neighbours.
