most herbs are just useful weeds they are hardy and tolerant to dry
and lots of sun. i
i have mounds of mint baisel sage ect. they
grow well and i do nothing to them but they are out side and i mulch i
have brought in and cultivated some fror neighbors to have and they
grow well even if i forget about them for a few days
have a go at it it's fun and easy i also grow them inside in a
strawberry pot (one with holes all in theside of a vase like pot
they do well in that and it is an attractive house plant to boot
i put rosemary or baisel in the top and just fill in the sides with
parsley and what ever else floats my boat i also like dill and chives
which do well too.
have fun happy cooking
I'd have to agree. Like with most anything else you learn as you go along.
When I started my first garden I just planted away! I learned a few things
since then (-;
By the way one of my favorite herbs to grow is catnip - I like to see if my cat
catches on and actually knows its growing.
"How did I ever get talked into this?"
Absent Japanese beetles, many herbs are natural insect repellents, and
less bothered than other crops. Most aren't "heavy feeders", so after
planting in suitable soil, over- rather than under-fertilizing is a
more likely problem. Nearly all herbs thrive with lots of sun.
Oh, if you have Swallowtail butterflies, watch your dill and parsley.
Swallowtail 'pillars *love* those.
Lots of sun. You can buy plants or seed packets. Most herbs need
very little fertilizer, but needs vary from plant to plant. I've had
limited success growing herbs indoors, but when planted outdoors in
full sun (with neglect) they seem to grow like weeds. My sage is now
in full bloom, almost quadrupled in size since early spring.
