Some herbs germinate and grow faster than others, but you can benefit by beginning harvests much earlier than you think. Most herbs develop bushier growth when you harvest early -- so as soon as you can trim a stem here or a leaf or two there, start enjoying herbs on your salads, or a handful in soups or sauces. You'll actually get more herbs in the long run if you start gently trimming them back early.
How do I know when to start harvesting? Herbs.
