Tips and Hints for Successful Herb Planting

An herb garden can be a fantastic addition to any garden, especially if you plan it carefully beforehand. Every single one has its own charm and range of uses, which means you can pick the exact range and selection that you will put to the most use in your garden. Every herb is available to buy separately, which means that it is easy to create your ideal herb garden within easy reach of your kitchen.

The Ideal Place to Create a Miniature Kitchen Garden

The problem with the typical herb is that it tends to spread out if given the chance. That's why it's a good idea to use other methods of finding a good spot to plant them, in order that you can maintain control over how well and how far they spread.

If you have a patio or veranda, why not add an herb or two to the plant pots you probably already have dotted about? You could build or buy a wooden trough especially for growing them in, and paint or stain it to match in with your existing dcor. Even placing a selection of gravel or decorative pebbles around each herb can help to add a certain degree of charm to the finished result.

Making the Most of the Aromas

Every herb has its own wonderful smell to enjoy, which is why placing them close to any seating area you might have is such a great idea. Try putting mint near to your back door and you'll see what an effect it can have each time the breeze picks up! It's a strong yet attractive aroma that really smells good when it's growing.

Rosemary is another good bet if you want to grow an herb which produces a wonderful smell that you will notice every time you walk past it. If you love lamb you will definitely want to grow it since it really brings out the flavors every time you cook it.

You will find that as you become more adept at growing various types, you will start to think about growing from seed as well as using seedlings, and trying your hand at growing different ones too. Try and do some research on the internet to get the best out of each herb, to ensure each one lasts as long as possible and always looks at its best. In short, every herb has its benefits and once you start growing them, you will probably never stop.
