Welcome to Gardening Chief – your single source for growing herbs (and more) as well as preserving, storing, and using them.  We focus on what’s easy to grow in the USA, with a minimum of fuss and mess. 

Our content on growing herbs is based on growing conditions in the USA.   And our recommendations, reviews, suppliers, and content are based on the US market, US availability, and sources.  Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t grow some of the herbs that we write about in other places too – you’ll just need to check local conditions, and plant and seed suppliers.
