Herbs are plants that are useful to humans. Not quite the same as a vegetable or fruit, an herb is something we value for a variety of different reasons. An herb can be useful for its flavour, its scent or its medicinal properties. An herb garden is a garden being used solely to grow herbs. An herb garden can be any size or shape, and can contain many different types of herbs or just a few. An herb garden may take up an entire yard or simply be planted in a small windowbox container. Herb gardens can be kept indoors on a sunny windowsill or outdoors in the open breeze.
