|I have had reasonable success growing herbs in my garden this past season. I have just learned that some are perennial and some are not. How do I know which is which ? I don't want to till up the plants if they are going to come back in spring.
Thank you in advance,
|Perennial herbs generally develop woody stems, as opposed to annual herbs which tend to have soft green stems. Some of the more popular annual herbs include basil, chervil, cilantro, marjoram, summer savory, dill and tarragon. Parsley is a biennial but is often grown as an annual. If you're not sure what's growing in your garden you can wait until spring to till it up or pull out the annuals. Enjoy your herb garden!|
