  • COLUMN: Class provides tips for growing herbs

    Most culinary herbs are perennials. Perennials live more than two growing seasons. Herbs will do well in pots, if adequate drainage is provided. Use a good-quality potting mix with fertilizer.

    Container herbs will require more moisture than garden-grown herbs, and many will benefit from after-noon shade.

    No one objected to the plan at a hearing on Feb. 28, and Curry told the magistrates that no one living in the area had expressed opposition to the plan.
