While a majority of gardeners grow vegetables and fruits, a dedicated herb gardener is difficult to find. If you already have grown tomatoes and zucchinis consider growing basil and mint alongside the cucumbers and beans.

How about growing rosemary and thyme along with marigolds and nasturtiums? If you really love the fragrance of rose and night queen, you will also love the aromas of lavender and lemon grass.
