Commonly used in Italian dishes, basil is great for adding flavor to soups and sauces. When cooking, add it towards the end to maintain flavor. 


Most Mexican and Asian dishes use cilantro. Due to its strength, use lightly and add more to taste. Use sharp, clean scissors to cut your plant 1/3 down to harvest.  


Dill tastes best before flowering in dips, soups, herb butters, salads, and seafood dishes. Best to harvest only what you need for cooking.    

Spearmint is utilised in desserts, teas, and jellies, while peppermint is used for its scent. Cut approximately an inch from the container before flowering for a lot.



Oregano is most common in Italian and Greek dishes; often used in soups, stews, and sauces.  Harvest individual leaves from the stem or harvest a long stem with leaves on it. 

Parsley (Italian) 

Italian Parsley is commonly used in soups, sauces and salads, and reduces the need for salt. It’s generally used to add flavor to dishes, rather than a garnish.
