I always find that I have an abundance of those hardy herbs that keep on going over winter – sage, rosemary, oregano, thyme and even parsley (when the weather is mild enough). What do I do with them all to keep them pruned as I always have more than I can ever use – the answer is simple – hang them up and dry them out, mix them together and there you have it – a never ending supply of mixed herbs for your herb drawer to add to all those lovely home made pasta dishes yum. They look and smell lovely as they hang to dry, after a few weeks when they are dry pull the herbs from the stalks and store them in jars. If you fancy getting creative, draw up some pretty labels to attach to jars and share then with friends and neighbours. Easy to grow if you are limited for space on your balcony or terrace.
