ABILENE, Texas -

Big Country Master Gardener Krista Bunger visited KTXS This Morning on Tuesday and brought along a few herbs and plenty of herb knowledge.

The mild weather the area has been experienced has helped the growing of some herbs, such as mints, Bunger said. Many herbs will grow during the winter, especially thyme, chives, and rosemary. 

Bunger also shared how using fresh herbs from a backyard garden can benefit cooking.  The flavors and vitamins in fresh herbs make them perfect for any chef.

If you want to start your own herb garden, use just a little bit of mulching. 

"They do very well here, even in our driest time of year," Bunger said. "They can grow almost all year round."
