Grown and used in cuisines around the world, basil is indispensable to Louisiana cooks as well.

Herbs can be loosely grouped into cool season annuals, warm season annuals, and perennials.

Annuals live for one season and then dial. Perennial herbs, on the other hand, can live for many years.

Fall is a great time to plant cool season annual herbs and most of the perennial herbs into your garden.

Fall is a really good time to plant seeds or transplants of cool season herbs, including annuals like dill and cilantro, and perennials like mint, rosemary, and lavender.
