Herbs

Fresh culinary herbs, straight out of the garden are a must have. Even the smallest windowsill garden can provide fresh herbs for cooking. Most require a warm, sunny location in the garden but not necessarily the most fertile soils as they are quite easy to grow.

Basil, requires warmer weather, so the best time to put that outside is when your tomatoes are ready to go out. Night time temperatures of 10 degrees celcius consistently.
