Growing herbs is integral to most Permaculture systems because of the myriad of benefits and uses they provide.
Most, particularly evergreen herbs, are waterwise and drought tolerant, adding beauty and fragrance to the garden even under dry conditions.
On top of their aesthetic appeal, herbs have many practical uses, which we talk more about below, including:
- Their flowers provide nectar and pollen for natural garden predators such as wasps.
- As companion plants, some herbs repel garden pests.
- Herbs can be used to make many products including green household cleaners, skin creams, soaps, and pest repellents.
- Many herbs have medicinal value.
- Herbs provide a fresh and tasty flavouring for a wide range of foods.
