Growing and Making Fresh Herbal Tea

As summer heats up, the herb garden is in full swing and many of the herbs have grown so big that it’s time for them to have some trimming done to encourage fullness and regrowth. What do you do with all those trimmings? Make a fresh herbal tea, of course! If you’ve never had fresh herb tea, it’s definitely something you should try. It’s easy and delicious!

I usually cut mine back once or twice a season to keep it under control.

Three Easy-To-Grow Herbs

Herbs are some of the easiest plants to grow. They’re not fussy and usually, you can just plant them and let Mother Nature take care of the rest. It’s best to try to meet the growing requirements stated on the label when you buy the plant. But even in that regard, herbs give you lots of leeway. Many will thrive in both full sun and partial shade. They usually don’t like wet feet, so make sure your site is well-drained.

Since the growing season is upon us, I encourage everyone to experiment with a few easy-grow-herbs that can even be tucked in among your other garden plants — no fancy herb garden required!
