Herbs repel pests, attract helpful insects, and generally bring the garden into balance. Planting herbs nearby improves the growth and yield of most vegetables.
Annual herbs will generally do well in the bed with vegetables. Most herbs will want to be planted in spring after all danger of frost is past and the soil is warm; exceptions are clearly noted. Most of these are easy to grow. Many are members of the carrot family, like dill, parsley, and cilantro.
Codes used in the Herb descriptions:
B=biennial (lives 2 years)
TP=tender perennial (perennial in frost-free areas)
