Spring herbs typically enjoy plenty of sunshine, water, and soft soil to grow and thrive. For herbs that are flourishing and flavourful, make sure to consult the care tag that comes with each of your plants. Whether you are growing your herbs from seed or purchasing an already-established plant, the care should be similar for both!
