  • 8 Herbs to Grow This Summer

    You don't need a big garden to grow herbs. Every summer I grow them on the sunniest part of my deck in pots. Herbs make great container plants. They love lots of sun and well-drained soil. You can really get creative and not just grow them together in their own containers but add them to your floral containers as well. In the past, I have used chives instead of spikes for height in the center or back of larger container. I've also added trailing herbs like different varieties of thyme to the front of containers.

     Read on to find out are my top 8 must have herbs that live on my deck every summer.

    Read on to find 4 of my favorite shrubs that add color, texture and interest to my yard.
