Some Tips on Fine Herbs

Harvesting herbs :ideally, this is done before the heat of mid-day, when the morning dew has dried on the leaves. This is when they release all their scents and flavours. This is also when the essential oil contents are highest.

Picking edible flowers: the best time is late morning, after the dew. However, by harvesting just before consuming them, you avoid storage difficulties.

Processing excess pickings : if this is the case, you can air dry your herbs, dehydrate them, freeze them, add them to salt to create salted herbs or plunge them into vinegar to add flavour.

Vary the types of Basil

  • Green or Genovese: lemon and mint
  • Lettuce Basil: light aniseed flavour
  • Sweet Basil: licorice, mint and spices
  • Cinnamon Basil: clove and cinnamon
  • Lemon Basil: lemon

What to do with mint: as mints are rather invasive plants, plant all your mint in one modular garden unit. You can use a total of 3 different plants by selecting from peppermint, spearmint, lemon mint, pineapple mint or chocolate mint.

Thyme avails you more choices : in addition to traditional thyme, that is, peppery with a touch of menthol, you can also grow lemon thyme with a strong lemon scent, orange thyme with a spicy orange scent, caraway thyme with caraway odour or Breckland thyme with more intense and more refined flavours than the common thyme.

What to do with coriander : it is a plant that grows quickly. You should therefore plan to replant or resow if you want to have some at all times. You can eat the fresh leaves of coriander, but you can also harvest the seeds.

Nasturtiums : choose the climbing varieties that fall down along the box

Pansies : select varieties with small yellow or orange flowers, as they are much tastier.

Taste French tarragon before buying it : beware!!! Some storeowners sell it under the name “Russian tarragon”, which has no taste at all.
