Take Your Garden Up a Notch by Growing Herbs
Lifestyle| | By Margo Gothelf
Herbs are the perfect plant to grow, especially for a new gardener. They can grow in small containers, inside or outside, and tend to mix well with other plants in the same pot. Not only do herbs take a meal to the next level by adding fresh spice and flavor, but they also are full of health benefits. They can be used in teas, perfumes, and medicines and are beneficial for your health, body, and overall mood. Check out some tips below on how to grow the perfect herbs.
First, make sure you have a “lightweight growing mix and a large container.” Herbs do not need to be planted in the ground and tend to thrive when planted in containers. Make sure to pick a sunny spot and do not over water the plants. The plants can also survive without a lot of fertilizer. Herbs grow well when planted near other plants. They are known as “collaborative species” and help other plants thrive. Check out the chart below to see which herb is best for you! Happy gardening!
