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.
