For those of us who like cooking, there is nothing nicer than having fresh herbs on hand to complete a meal. But the use of herbs is not limited to cooking.

You can also use them as medicinal aids, aromatic fresheners, or simply as decorative plants.

Herbs are the leaves, flowers, seeds, and stems of edible plants. They are used in cooking, medicine, and cosmetics. Herbs are often grouped into two categories, cool and warm.

Cool herbs are those that cool the body and include mint, thyme, lavender, and sage. Warm herbs are those that heat the body and include peppermint, basil, and oregano.

Vertical Planters

Planting your herbs vertically will improve their yield by allowing you to use the entire length of the stem, leaves, and all. When planted in a pot, herbs often lose their lower leaves and stems due to a lack of sunlight.

By planting herbs vertically, you can cut the stems to the desired length of your cut and the leaves will not wither. Planting your herbs vertically will give them a tougher stem and help them grow faster.

Herbs that grow upright like this need less water, and the extra stems mean more leaves and flowers.
