Cindy Feigert asked Frances Mayes:

This is not really a question more of a thank you for the inspiration. Because of your books I have decided to try my hand at gardening. I've started a small herb garden. Any thoughts on how to make them thrive? Also I tried one of your recipes yesterday, lemon-basil chicken. Very good! Thanks!

Frances Mayes Don't water them too much, esp. lavender and rosemary. Pinch back the basil flowers so the leaves don't turn bitter. Thank you!
