There is a whole lot more to herb gardens than meets the eye, especially when it comes to their benefits. Below we describe some of the reasons why these types of gardens may prove to be advantageous for Minnesota residents.
You can eliminate the high costs that come with purchasing herbs from a local supermarket by having your own herb garden. Your herb garden will allow you will have access to fresh herbs anytime you want; be it indoors or outdoors.
Adding fresh herbs to you diet is an ideal way to boost your overall well-being. In addition, the exercise one gets from engaging in gardening activities also helps them to stay fit and healthy.
Herb gardening can be a rather educational experience for the entire family. This is because there is always something new to learn when it comes to gardening techniques.
Having a herb garden can help to raise the overall curb appeal of your home’s landscape. This is because most herbs tend to be as pretty as flowers and shrubs.
Visiting or tending to your herb garden can go a long way when it comes to relieving your built-up stress levels, which are usually acquired from handling other day-to-day activities. All of the sights and scents in such a garden can delight most of your primary senses and rejuvenate your soul.
Overall, what kind of herbs grow well in Minnesota? Well, according to the University of Minnesota Extension, a wide variety of herbs can grow here, but the two main families of herbs that thrive in Minnesota are mint and carrot.
No, it’s not just mint leaves and carrots that can grow here. Herbs in the mint family include popular spices such as rosemary, oregano, basil and thyme, as well as the varieties of mint leaves. Herbs included in the carrot family are more popular ones like coriander, dill and parsley. While those in the mint family can have moderate tolerance of dry soil, the carrot family is a bit more rigid in its need for moist and deep soil.
Having your own herb garden means that at one point or another you will have more produce than you need. As a result, you can become a beloved neighbor by sharing what you have with some of the people in your area.
Although it might not be the cleanest of hobbies, engaging in herb gardening activities can be a rather fun experience for you and your entire family.
