Shrubs are used in four broad ways: for boundaries. for partitions and backgrounds, for specimens and for foundation plantings. We have discussed the uses of shrubs and the characteristics demanded by each use. Even at the risk of repetition, further discussion with the particular plans in mind may be helpful.
Herbs are the leaves and flowers of low-growing woody plants that do not have a trunk, that have stems growing from the base. Examples of herbs are licorice, parsley, chives, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, oregano, dill and celery. Herbs can be used for a wide range of purposes ranging from culinary, medicinal, perfumery and other needs. Many herbs grow low and are aromatic, which can be dried or used to flavor foods. It depends on what you want to use the herbs for which ones you grow.
