Grow Your Own Herb Garden – Planting, Caring and Harvesting
Are you dreaming of growing your own foods? Growing fruit and vegetables can be a bit daunting and requires quite a bit of effort and time for most things so might not be suitable for everyone these days, with modern lifestyles and busy schedules. You also need space to have a vegetable garden at home — preferably an actual garden.
A great place to start if you’re interested in growing your own produce, is to start by growing your own herbs at home. Growing herbs is a lot easier than vegetables, it’s quicker too, less work and it doesn’t require much space at all. You don’t need a garden at all — a windowsill will do just fine for these smaller plants.
All you need to get started is a few small pots, a bit of soil and the seeds of your choice. It’s also a good idea to get a bit of knowledge about what to plant when, how to care for your herbs and when to harvest them.
The infographic below will help you gain that knowledge and shows these things for the popular herbs basil, rosemary, chives, thyme, dill and sage.
Soon, you’ll have a lovely little home garden with delicious herbs to flavour and bring your food to new levels. After all, you can’t get herbs any fresher than ones just grown right there, in your own home. It’s a great way to gently get into gardening and growing your own food.
