Herb Garden Tips

Containers and Soil:

Most herb require good soil drainage(well drained soil). Using pots that have perforated bottom allows drainage of excess moisture.

Location:

The sun and temperature requirements of the specific herb determines the best location. Most herbs grow best outdoors with abit of shade. Too much direct sunlight can shorten the productive life of the  herbs .

Water Needs:

Containers dry out faster than garden beds, especially when the herbs are set outside. Most indoor pots require watering every two to three days, or when the top inch of soil feels dry. Outdoor pots may require watering  as often as once a day, or even up to twice a day during the hot season . Pots kept indoors should be set on a drip tray to catch any excess water as it drains.

Fertilizer:

Herbs generally require minimal fertilization. Too much fertilizer can result in a poor flavor.

Pruning and Harvesting:

Herbs tend to produce more when you prune and harvest from the plant . Pruning also prevents the plants from outgrowing their pots.
