Four Seasons Gardening Series – Herbs. Presented by Jim Schmidt with University of Illinois Extension. Presented on April 10, 2014.
Everyone has probably encountered herbs in some way in their life – either through food, cosmetics, medicines or crafts. Herbs are ideal plants for the landscape because of their interesting textures and utility and are natural additions to the vegetable or patio garden. This session will look at various common herbs and their characteristics. It will also focus on how to grow, when to harvest and potential savory uses.
