Growing Herbs At Home
Growing your own herbs for culinary,
medicinal and ecological purposes is a great way to get into gardening
or expand the gardening you may already do.
Whether it's a simple window-sill planter
with chives or a full blown
you can enjoy free fresh herbs all year long.
You can buy your herbs in the early spring at most
garden centers, or you can start your own from seed. Start multiple seeds in 4"
pots using a good starting mix.
Cover and water daily with organic fertilizer. Fish emulsion or seaweed extract
are good choices. Plants can later be thinned and transplanted into the ground,
pots or hanging baskets.
We like the organic seeds and other
quality products and great information at Seeds of Change. Visit their
