Herbs (Fresh or Dried)

Herbs fall under three major categories - Annuals, Biennials and Perennials.


Annuals : 



Annual herbs bloom only once in a year and perish after that. Basil, Coriander, Dill, and Borage are some examples of annual herbs.


Biennials : 


Biennial herbs are the one that survice for two searsons (2 years). Parsley Primrose are examples of biennial herbs. They produce leaves in the first season and flowers and seeds in the second season after which the plant does not survive.





Perennial herbs are the ones that survice more than two growing seasons. Most culinary herbs such as Chives, Fennel, Marjoram, Mints. Oregano, Rosemary, Tarragon, Lavender, Sage, Thyme, etc are perennials. These types of herbs gain maturity in the second year while growing at a slow pace in the first year.
