Get to know your herbs a little bit more!
Here's your beginner's guide
Growing a herb garden is an engaging activity and a great starting place for new gardeners. 
Herbs have long been revered for both their medicinal and culinary value. The main requirement for growing Herbs is growing them in the proper location. Most prefer full sun as long as regular summer temperatures don't rise above 90 degrees.


The Main Things You Will Need Are:

  • Pots - Our coco pot is the best when starting to plant because it has excellent water holding capacity, allows the roots to grow freely and repotting or transplanting is very easy.
  • Good potting soil enough to fill your pot
  • Fertilizer - we recommend organic herb or vegetable fertilizer
  • Water can or hose 

Planting:


You need approximately 1 to 4 feet in diameter for each plant, depending on the plant. Here are some general guidelines for plant sizes:

  • 3-4 feet - Rosemary, Sage, Mints, Oregano, Marjoram
  • 2 feet - Basils, Thyme, Tarragon, Savory
  • 1 foot - Cilantro, Chives, Dill, Parsley

Watering:

 

Herbs' needs are minimal. Water your herbs in the early morning if possible let the water soak further into the soil. Always water the soil around the herb and never water over the leaves. To plant healthy, strong herb plants , water them when they become dry. 


Pruning:


Regular pruning promotes general health while preventing plants from getting leggy and unattractive. Pruning can be a time-consuming process, but it is beneficial for plant growth and air circulation.


Benefits


  • New growth. Regular pruning is essential for promoting health and new growth in your herb garden.
  • Good air circulation. Dense, overgrown vegetation demands careful pruning to open things up so that sunlight and fresh air can circulate
  • Controlling spread. Some sprawling herbs, like mint, oregano, and rosemary, will take over an entire herb bed if not contained.
