Celebrating National Herb Week can be carried on through Sunday for Mother's Day!
Receiving potted herb plants is a perfect present for the mother or mother-in-law, who loves to cook. This is one of those gifts that keeps giving too. Besides inspiring new spring recipes from Mom's kitchen, it's also a convenient way for her to enjoy and have easy access to the fresh earthly scents of rosemary, basil, oregano or thyme on her countertop or window sill. And this gift may give back to you in a few weeks when that first batch of pesto is plated up.
It is a good idea to purchase glazed pots, so the herb plants won’t dry out so quickly. Unfinished terracotta pots soak up the moisture from the soil like a sponge. This added step will prevent frequent watering. And planting potted herbs today, will offer you tasty additions to your dishes in a couple weeks!
