In the ga rden
Herbs love warm weather, so now is a good time to start a few in pots on the windowsill. Here are three easy ones to grow:
MINT: This herb doesn’t like it too hot, so start it off on the windowsill, then put it under the shade of a tree outside.
OREGANO: This is a must-have herb for cheese on toast, pizza or anything involving cheese. It’s drought-resistant once established, so it’s great for the sunny side of the deck.
ROSEMARY: Make sure you get the prostrate version as it will be much happier in a pot than one that wants to spread. Rosemary loves hot weather but will not like damp roots, so make sure there is plenty of drainage in the pot.
