Herb Garden Planner that you can try out free for 30 days. I have not taken advantage of mine, but I'm going to redesign and rework my plants this season with the help of Herb Garden Planner. I also wrote a post for getting started with your herb garden last April called Lots of Good Basic Herb Gardening Information. Here then are some resources to help you get local information. A couple of national websites to give you master gardener information, one from the American Horticultural Society that gives you a map to click on for master gardener information by state and if you scroll down into Canada there are links for their programs. If the master gardener links are stale which sometimes they are, here is also a link to the county extension websites that are available. They usually have master gardeners or extension agents available to answer your questions for your local area. I love extension and it is an important asset that you should be using. The USDA just came out with a new zone map. That will give you a ballpark of what you might be able to grow. Then because I'm answering a question about what perennial herbs a reader in northern Michigan can grow. I will give you a couple of book resources to consider.
Well, I think I have given you some food for thought. Tomorrow I will start discussing strategy and herbs to consider. Going to walk before it rains! Can't believe the weather. Talk to you later.
