Herb Garden

Herbs are by far the easiest and most versatile plants to grow in any garden. Even if you're a beginner, herbs are adaptable, hardy, fast-growing, low-maintenance, and will grow in almost any environment, from containers to flower beds, and even in the wild. Best of all, herbs are useful! From delicious seasoning in classic recipes to herbal teas and cocktails, and even medicinal uses, its always good to have fresh herbs handy at home.

In the following videos, I'll show you how to plant, maintain and harvest all kinds of herbs in your garden. I'll even share some great recipes with you for my favorite herbal teas, remedies, and even a fun cocktail. Take a look!

How to Freeze Culinary Herbs

Fresh herbs look amazing in the garden and they taste even better in all of your favorite foods…especially Italian food. You probably guessed that I would say that. Today, I’m going to teach you a cool way to preserve your herbs for the whole year. Come with me….As you will see I have a delicious variety of parsley and basil. They are both a vibrant green and so aromatic that I just want to eat it all. Take off just the tops of the plants so they can continue producing. Then I take them into the kitchen and make sure that I have spices for the rest of the year.


Shaker Medicinal Herb Garden

Shakers learned everything they know about staying healthy from Native American wisdom.  Today I am going to show you how to make three holistic teas that have been keeping people free from common complaints for thousands of years.  Be sure to ask your doctor before using these teas, especially if you are taking a prescription medicine.

I am going to make three types of medicinal teas: Hyssop Blue, Feverfew and Bee Balm. Hyssop Blue is known for it's assistance for chest congestion and coughs. Feverfew prevents migraine headaches and should be drank daily as a preventative measure.  Bee Balm helps with nausea and digestive issues.
