Herbs are plants that are often associated with cooking and flavouring food. Most often, it is the leafy part of the plant that offers the distinctive flavours. When the leaves are cut from the plant, the roots remain and leaves will grow back in future seasons. An abundance of fresh herbs would allow excess leaves to be dried and stored ready for use at a later date. Herb gardens can be grown indoors or outdoors.
