The herbs you add to your kitchen window box will depend on you and which herbs you prefer. You want to plant herbs that you will enjoy and will use to flavor your dishes.

1. Parsley

This is my favorite herb because of its versatility. Parsley offers a fresh & bright flavor, perfect for garnishing and adding a pop of green to your dishes.

2. Rosemary

Known for its woody fragrance, rosemary is excellent for seasoning roasted meats and vegetables. I also love to add rosemary to stovetop potpourris because of its earthy scent.

3. Thyme

With its earthy & slightly minty taste, thyme is a go-to herb for soups, stews, and roasted meats. It’s also great for seasoning vegetables and homemade salad dressings.

4. Chives

These mild onion-flavored herbs are fantastic for adding a pop of flavor to salads, omelets, and creamy soups. I add chives to almost every dish during the summer months.

5. Lavender

Adds a delicate floral flavor to both sweet and savory dishes, such as desserts, teas, and even roasted meats. Its soothing aroma can also create a calming atmosphere in your kitchen.
