  • The key takeaway for me was 'if you can grow your own houseplants'. LOL my family says I have a black thumb. Thank you to all the farmers who grow the herbs for me.
  • Little steps lead to big changes.

    I really appreciated being able to read this article on growing your own herbs. Thank you for writing and sharing it here on Spark People.
  • You can put annuals anywhere there is good sunlight, but plan ahead for the perennials so you don't have to move them in a year or two.
  • Thank you for the article!
  • Great article. Thank you so much!!
  • I cut the botton off of large containers that other large plants came in. The I dig a hole in the ground to put them in. Next, I plant my herbs in the pot. This helps them from spreading all over my garden.
  • I grow an herb garden every year. Each year it is full of sage, rosemary, parsley, thyme, chives, etc. I can't get enough it!

    My family doesn't care much for herbs, so growing my own was a waste of time and water, for us. Didn't add anything to our lives. If they don't improve your life, do something else.

    I am looking into starting my own herb garden this upcoming summer. I really like these suggestions.
  • We've been very successful growing them indoors. I love the accessibility.
  • Good lord, i've found ALL of my herbs to be invasive, not just the mint. My oregano went from a tiny 4 inch plant last year to being 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide this year. My italian parsley went nuts before i could snip the flowers off and reseeded. My chives although planted in a small area that is concrete on all sides have started popping up all over my yard. The basil is out of control. The only thing that's not doing well is the dill...the oregano is eating it ;(
  • i plan on doing container gardening for my herbs using mason jars that i fasten to a board and hang on the wall.

    A friend told me it will work as long as i paint the outside of the mason jar.

    should i still use starter pots or start the seeds in the jars?
  • Not sure if it's too late for the lady who wanted to print with no buttons. On a PC you can print a page by holding down the control button on your keyboard while hitting the P key.
