Grow your own beautifully
Plant herbs in baskets
Good gardeners (and cooks!) know that the nearer your herbs are to the back door, the more likely you are to use them. No one wants to go far outside if it’s raining! A selection of pretty baskets or jute bags is perfect for herbs or cut-and-come-again salad leaves. Tie tags listing the names to the handles with ribbon so you know what you've got. Then just pop them outside the kitchen door, so all you have to do is reach out and pick.
