North Carolina is known for its hot, humid summers. There is one group of plants, though, that can thrive under these conditions--herbs. The author discusses growing herbs with Lisa Treadaway, an expert in the field and proprietress of The Little Herb House in southern Wake County. She started her first herb garden in 1999, a 6x6-foot bed. Today it has grown to a 10,000-foot herb display garden and rows of herbs for production.
