Some herbs can become quite invasive and literally seem to take over your garden. This is because the seeds spread easily and germinate readily, meaning you could have herb plants popping upo throughout your garden, and possibly choking off the vegetables and other herbs you are growing. Or they could have a far reach root system that causes new plants to pop up far away from the original plant.
Some herbs are much more invasive than others. The following herbs are all invasive and should be planted with caution.
- Bee Balm
- Burnet (salad burnet)
- White Yarrow
You can help prevent plants from becoming invasive by not allowing them to flower. Trim any buds when you see them forming.
