Tips Tricks and Techniques

Annual herbs:  Many annual herbs, such as anise, borage, dill, parsley, caraway, chervil, sweet marjoram, coriander and fennel, respond best to direct sowing in the garden. Many of these herbs also self-sow, meaning they drop their seeds after flowering, creating a new generation of plants the next year. A gardener must be extremely vigilant, however, not to disturb the soil around where these annuals matured until the new seedlings get established.
