It won’t fit on the windowsill, but a French
herb pot from WhiteflowerFarm.com
organizes five different herbs.
||If you don’t have a window herb box (or pots of herbs), it’s time! Once you start snipping fresh herbs, everything you serve will taste better.
We fill flowerpots with basil, chives, rosemary, thyme and tarragon. The plants are beautiful, fragrant and easy-to-grow (rosemary is hardy and can grow into quite a large household plant, and spawn cuttings for all of your friends). We snip fresh herbs into eggs, salads, on pizzas and sandwiches, use the fresh leaves as garnishes for everything—even sorbet.
You can grow your own herb pots from seed, or invest more and buy small pots of herbs that will quickly grow to meet your cooking needs.
