How to plant pizza herbs
1. Firstly, pick your pot. Think style to match your décor, but also grab a size that’ll give your herbs some room to grow.
2. Add a handful or two of quality potting mix (select the top of the range as it will include goodies like fertiliser and water saving granules).
3. Plant your herbs, adding potting mix as you go. Always wear gloves and a mask when handling potting mix.
What pizza herbs to plant
Only plant herbs that you love to eat. Put thyme, with its aromatic foliage, around the edge of your pot so it trails over the sides. For height, rosemary is a good option. Its needle-like leaves go great with lamb or sprinkled on potatoes. Add some oregano with its spicy and slightly lemony flavour as well as everyone’s favourite basil, that thrives in the warm. Other options to plant include parsley, chives that taste more delicate than onions, marjoram and sage.
Herbs love a sunny spot as the heat enhances the flavour of the leaves. Water regularly and harvest often to encourage your herbs to really flourish. When your pizza is cooked, sprinkle chopped, aromatic herbs on top.
