Southern Gardening: Garden fresh herbs add color, flavor
It may be early September, but now is a good time to start thinking about growing fresh herbs to harvest during the winter months.
Fresh herbs are relatively easy to grow in containers. In addition to offering a feast for the palate, herbs can offer a feast for the eyes. Many of the basic herb species are available in variegated or multicolored foliage. The multicolored ones work well in recipes, but they also make flavorful garnishes.
Common sage, Salvia officinalis, has a couple of attractive selections. Icertina has green leaves that are variegated with a steely grayish purple. A favorite of mine is the Tricolor selection, with its green leaves and white margins. Tricolor looks gorgeous in a container with pink or purple.
