Spring Has Sprung

Friday, April 6, 2018

Now that the weather outside is much warmer I ran to my nearest Home Depot Store to grab some herbs to grow! I have always wanted to have my own little garden, so I decided to give it a try. By no means do I have a green thumb to be completely honest I am just winging it and praying that these little babies grow. I did some research and read that herbs are the best way to go for beginner gardeners.  I choose lavender, basil and rosemary to start of with.  I wanted to share with you some of the things I have learned and read so far about herbs. By no means do I consider myself an expert, but I thought I would share  this new journey of mine.

Lavender
Lavender herbs require well drained soil. To help with drainage, you can add gravel to the soil. This herb is very low maintenance and requires minimal  watering. Lavender requires six hours of sunlight.


Basil
Basil herbs also require well drained soil. These herbs require six hours of sunlight. If you are growing basil inside it is highly recommend that you  fertilize the soil about once a month. Water basil when soil feels dry. Don't forget to prune leaves when needed.


Rosemary
Rosemary herbs require well drained soil. Rosemary needs up to six to eight hours of sunlight. Do not over water rosemary herbs. Check the soil to see if water is needed. Rosemary is a great plant to grow indoors and  outdoors. Don't forget to prune leaves when needed.

Happy planting!
