Are you ready to grow your own herbs? If so, it’s time to start looking into the best herbs for a beginner’s garden. Even if you don’t have much space—or a green thumb—you’ll be surprised at how easy it can be to grow your own herbs. Read on for six of the best herbs for beginners, plus some tips and tricks to help get you started:


Basil is an herb that’s great for your herb garden. Its many uses include cooking, medicinal purposes, decorative purposes and aromatherapy.


Mint is a perennial herb that can be grown in your herb garden. It grows best in areas with full sun and well drained soil, but it is also fairly adaptable to other conditions such as partial shade or wetter soils. Mint is a good companion plant because it helps deter pests from your other plants by masking their scent and taste. Mint has many uses:

  • As a tea herb for its calming properties on the stomach, an aid to digestion and relief of nausea;
  • As a medicinal herb to help calm respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis;
  • As a culinary herb due to its pleasant aroma which adds flavor when cooking with mint;
  • To grow beautiful decorative plants in your landscape design


Parsley is a biennial plant that grows in the spring and summer before dying back in the fall. It has a strong flavor that can be used fresh or dried to add some zest to your dishes. Parsley can be used in salads, soups, stews, casseroles and sauces for added flavor. It also makes a great garnish for many different dishes such as stews and soups.

Parsley is highly decorative as well! In addition to adding flavor it can also be used as an attractive addition to potpourri when dried or fresh cut sprigs are placed in decorative bowls around your home during Christmas time (think of those pretty little boxes).


Rosemary is another herb that can be grown outdoors or indoors. They thrive in full sun, but you can also grow them in partial shade. Rosemary plants require plenty of water and soil rich in organic material. If you decide to plant rosemary outside, choose a place where the plant will receive at least six hours of sunlight per day; however, if you live in a cold climate, it is recommended that you grow your rosemary indoors so they don’t freeze during winter months (and they won’t die).

You can harvest this herb whenever needed by pinching off leaves or stems as needed throughout the growing season until autumn when the plant goes dormant for winter. Once dried out completely, store your harvested rosemary by hanging bundles upside down away from direct sunlight for up to three years! You can also freeze your harvested herbs in oil or vinegar instead if preferred storing method (just remember after freezing apply pressure through rubbing fingers gently over surface area).

To use rosemary: chop up finely before adding into soups/stews/salads/marinades etc…A perfect addition to any meal time!


Thyme is a perennial herb that can be used to flavor food and beverages, as well as other household products like bath preparations and skin care. Other than its culinary uses, the herb has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient times. It’s also popularly used in aromatherapy to relieve stress and anxiety.

Thyme is easy to grow and it tolerates poor soil conditions well. If you’re just starting out with your herb garden, thyme is a good choice because it grows very quickly under ideal conditions so you can see results within a few weeks or months after planting them!


Coriander is a great herb to grow in your herb garden. It’s easy to plant, fun to harvest and has multiple uses in the kitchen and beyond. Coriander (also known as cilantro) is often used in cooking, but it also has medicinal benefits that can help with both digestion and skin care.

Coriander seeds are edible and have a distinct flavor similar to citrus fruits such as lime or lemon. They’re also used for their health benefits; coriander seeds are rich in iron and vitamin C, which helps fight off common colds by boosting the immune system—but you’ll want to get your daily dose from food rather than supplementing with pills or powders!
