Herbs that grow well in Central Florida
Since my husband and I love to cook it is important for us to have the freshest herbs possible. Some herbs are short lived like cilantro, and need to be sown in intervals, others grow best in the cooler months, like Parsley.
I have a raised bed for the herbs, but some grow all over the garden like dill and fennel, mainly for the butterflies, or Rue, for its beautiful foliage.
Here is a list of herbs we grow successful in Myrtle Glen:
- Cilantro and its seeds Coriander
- Fennel, bronze
- Garlic chives
- Ginger, we keep it in a pot, it would take over the garden
- Hyssop (Ysop)
- Lemon Balm
- Lemon Grass
- Mint - Apple mint, chocolate mint, spear mint, pepper mint, variegated mint
- Oregano, Italian
- Parsley, flat and curly leaved
- Pineapple Sage
- Summer savory
