- Basil is usually the first seed to sprout and it grows rapidly. Harvest basil
(and any other fast-growing herbs) to keep them an inch or two below

- Some herbs, such as chives, thyme, and oregano grow slowly and often
get shaded by faster growing plants. Create space for slow-growing
plants by pruning surrounding plants with garden shears.
