A good use of herbs and spices is key to every keen cook’s creativity in the kitchen. It’s certainly true that when we think of our favourite dishes, it’s often the seasoning that provides an extra boost to the taste. When applied judiciously during the preparation and cooking, herbs such as basil, dill, chives and coriander are potential life savers for all kinds of meals and snacks.
To really get the best out of your kitchen, it’s a great idea to grow your own herbs and spices. In the past, this might have been quite difficult without adequate garden space. Thankfully now the best homeware designers have caught up with modern living arrangements, and have produced growing kit and pots and containers suitable for interiors of all sizes.
