Perennial herbs are a wonderful addition to any garden.

Who wants to replant their gardens year after year? I know I don’t. One of the more difficult things about using herbs for medicinal or just for cooking is getting them started and waiting till the plant is big enough to sustain being cut back. There are many herbs that will come back year after year, IF! You plant them in the ground. I see many herbs planted in buckets and containers. This is fine for the annual herbs.

However the herbs that are strong enough to come back must be planted in the ground to protect their roots through the winter’s bitter cold.

Any herbs that you see with a link attached will take you to a post with the herbs medicinal uses for pets and livestock.

Perennial Herb List:

  • Lavender

  • Rosemary

  • Oregano**

  • Peppermint**

  • Chives

  • Thyme

  • Sage

  • Tarragon

  • Chamomile

  • Lemon Balm

  • Catnip

** Any herbs with the asterisks at the end are plants that will take over if not carful. Even if there is a small amount of root left they will grow back. Make sure you want it where you originally plant it.

One issue will herbs is that they can grow unruly and not look very polished if you are wanting to keep your home well landscaped. If you trim plants like lavender, rosemary, and sage that will become full and bushy plants rather then scraggly and thin looking.
