6 Low-Maintenance Perennial Herbs For A Beginner Backyard Garden

6 Low-Maintenance Perennial Herbs For A Beginner Backyard Garden

Some of the easiest culinary herbs to grow are long-lived perennial herbs! These low-maintenance edible garden (kitchen garden) plants come back year after year. While some backyard herbs die back completely in the autumn cold, these ones will sprout right back up in the spring!

Some perennial herbs are easy to grow from seeds, but others must be purchased as baby plants to get the true culinary form. Let’s look at how to grow each of these long-lived herb plants so you can get your perennial herb garden up and running.

    Definitely "must haves" for a garden. I struggle with rosemary. No matter how I try to grow it, it always dies.

    Great video! Thanks for the info ☺️

    Rosemary and Basil is very good also for garden protection.

    I had no idea tarragon was a perennial! Love it with chicken or salmon. Sage is one of my favorites. What a difference a few herbs make to a dish, and to think we can have them coming back year after year!

    I love my chives and parsley but the parsley isn’t hardy so I am trying to cover it and see what happens
