From Ancient Rome, India and Greece, herbs have long been an integral part of the evolution of culinary culture in our world.  The taste they give, the health benefits they provide and the recreation allowed for gardeners are all important parts of our horticulture and foods background!

While Garden Starters offers a variety of pre-configured combination kits, we would like to offer a few awesome ideas on how you can create your own herb gardens with a touch of culture added 🙂


Greek Herbs

The use of Greek herbs is typically simple, but effective.  Lamb, fish and vegetables are staples in the diet that centers on Mediterranean origins.
