Herbs are a perfect choice for growing in hanging baskets, especially if you’re running out of space in your kitchen garden. They’ll make a beautiful display and nothing could be easier than popping outside and sniping a few fresh leaves for use in your favourite dishes. The herbs in this collection are all ‘hanging’ varieties specifically bred for baskets and will do well hung in a sunny, sheltered position.
