The aromatic plants are for the most part of European origin and can also be grown without problems in the garden or in pots. Most of the most used plants, such as: thyme, sage and rosemary, are small evergreen shrubs, which prefer sunny positions; therefore, let's place them in full sun, in a soil that is not excessively rich, very well drained; rosemary does not need watering; as for sage and thyme, remember to moisten the soil during the hottest periods of the year. The other herbs are also perennial and evergreen, but the young vegetation is more aromatic and fragrant; therefore rocket, parsley and basil are grown as annuals. We work well the soil of the plot in which we want to cultivate them, adding rich substrate and manure; level the ground well and moisten it thoroughly; then we sow the aromatic plant we have chosen; remember to keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate completely; later we water sporadically. To obtain a luxuriant harvest, we avoid sowing our herbs in an excessively sunny plot, preferring a semi-shady position, which receives sunlight only in the early hours of the day. To always have fresh plants we can also practice graded sowing: as soon as the first sowing is ready for harvest, we sow other plants, so as to always use young aromatic plants.
