Gardening where the sidewalk ends

Scarborough Fair August 24, 2008

Looking for some great herbs to plant in your parking strip? Sing along with me now…

Italian Parsley

Parsley

Silver Sage

Sage

Rosemary

Rosemary

Lemon Thyme

and Thyme.

All are easy-care, and except for parsley they are evergreen perennials at least in my zone (8, Seattle). Culinary thyme comes in many varieties, as does culinary sage. They all taste delicious and look great to boot, even poking through the snow!

(And no, Simon and Garfunkel did NOT write that song… it’s an old English folk song about a medieval market town and a man’s impossible demands for his former love.)

    Hi Cindy –

    Thanks for the return visit! Having a few herbs in the garden year-round it such a boon – it’s always nice to be able to go snip something to put in a meal, even if it’s just a sprig or two. So nice to have them fresh, they taste so much better!

    – Karen
