Help with a list of heat loving culinary herbs?
Some of y'all may remember my emergency bucket garden last year - 18, 3 gallon mop buckets full of potting soil. The soil is improved this year, since I grew peas in them last year. I think I'll go ahead and plant radishes leaf lettuce and spinach for a quick early spring crop. After that, I think I'll use them for culinary herbs since I can move them around for sun or bring them in when it is too cold or hot. So, I'm trying to compile a list of 18 herbs that would grow well in the pots and could benefit from getting more heat and sun than most of my yard has to offer. So far I'm thinking:
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (of course... though parsley and sage will want a cooler spot as summer comes in), basil, oregano, cilantro,... maybe chervil, lemon grass, mint.... tarragon, marjoram, savory... maybe dill, but that usually needs more space (or takes it).
What else can y'all suggest?
