Container Herb Gardens: Enjoy the Fresh Taste of Herbs in an Urban Setting

Container herb gardens are one of the best ways to enjoy having the fresh taste of herbs in your dishes no matter where you are. There are many people who enjoy the taste of fresh herbs in their dishes or for medical purposes but they may live in an apartment or in an area, which does not allowing gardening such as a rented house. In that case, container herb gardens can provide the perfect solution for individuals who do not have a lot of space or have restrictions on the use of their yards and who want the enjoyment that comes from fresh herbs.

How to Create Container Herb Gardens

Creating container herb gardens are not as difficult as they may sound. The first thing to do is research the type of herbs that you want to grow. Herbs have a number of properties. Some of them can help with headaches, stomachaches and other various medical conditions as well as tasting great in food.

Instructions and Supplies for Container Herb Gardens

The first thing you need to do when creating a container garden is to decide on the location and the amount of space you want to use. This will determine the size of the containers or container that you will need to use. You will also need to determine the type of herbs you are going to be growing.

This is important because there are a variety of different growing conditions. Depending on the type of herbs you want to grow, you may want to consider several different containers so that they can be placed in different areas. Once you have determined the type of herbs group them together based on the lighting and growing conditions. This will allow you to place the herbs together in similar groupings.

The next step is to determine if you are going to you already grown plants or start from seeds. Usually container gardens are created using already grown plants. It is also a good idea to have fertilizer prepared and to use a prepared top soil. This will help to reduce the shock of already living plants that you transplant and help to increase the chances of having seeds grow.

Once you have transplanted everything, place the containers in locations around your house that meet the lighting and exposure requirements for the plants. It is also a good idea to label the herbs so that you know where everything is located within the containers.
