Best Herbs For Vertical Gardens?

I am wanting to grow my own herbs, but I am not sure which ones are my best choices? You might be thinking the same thing, so let us just see what our best options are? Culinary herbs are very popular if you are into cooking, so these might be a great choice for people who love to spend their time in their kitchen?

  • Dill
  • Lemon Balm
  • Marjoram
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Sage
  • Stevia

Any of these your favorites, I am partial to lavender, mints, and thyme? Lavender grown indoors repels fleas, ticks, and most insects. That is why smart gardeners always include lavender in their garden, and mints are super easy to grow without much care at all? Mint will outgrow your vertical garden, but you can choose to keep it trimmed back or transplant it into a larger container?
