The article offers tips for growing culinary herbs such as sweet basil, chives, rosemary and thyme. The ideal location for growing sweet basil is in a rich, loose soil in full sun to partial shade. The top 2 inches of sweet basil should be harvested just before flowers bloom. Chives, on the other hand, are perennials that grow in clumps in moist, fertile soils in full sun to partial shade. Meanwhile, rosemary grows well in pots indoors.
