Not only will they add a pleasant fragrance to your outdoor space but they are perfect to use in delicious summer recipes. If you’re looking to add some herbs to the space outside your backdoor, gardening expert and founder of plant subscription box Lazy Flora, Claire Ransom, has shared her advice on the “perfect” herbs to plant.
