Ah yes, the aromatic herbs need to be planted! And not only for their flavour which improve each dish during cooking, but also for their ornamental value, which, however, if the combined with the value of their good smell make of those plants the perfect garden.
In fact, the advice from the perfect green thumb is to create in your green corner, a special ad hoc space, reserved for herbs, to fill the surrounding space with the strong and fragrant hedges, where refuge yourself looking for shade and peace, lulled by the home made aromatherapy spa.
The myrtle, from a firm and bushy consistency, is one of the first plants to be raised. Need a lot of sun, however, able to adapt to arid soils, waiting for fertilization and pruning to be program respectively in autumn and in winter. Remember that the leaves give off all their intense fragrance when rubbed, and especially with the flowers and berries can be dried in the sun and stored in boxes with the hermetic seal.
Beautiful and ornamental plant the chives is among the most ornamental of the group. Those delicate strands, perfect to close bundles of crepes and goat cheese and bresaola rolls, are actually noble and supple wires that hold delicate flowers with their ethereal pink colour. Aroma and flavour in 40 cm, to confuse those who dine with you between a hint of garlic and a hint of onion.
We finish with the rosemary, which owes its beauty to the slightly pink-lilac inflorescence which decorates the fragrant needles. Very unpretentious, just need a loose soil, poor and rocky, lots of sun and sufficient rainfall. Resists even with 10 degrees below zero and the trimming requested are mild and not radicals. Irreplaceable in kitchen will earn one of the favorite places in your plants park. Assuming that it is not already like that!
