I used this quote a few weeks ago, but after I picked some herbs from my Balcony Garden for a breakfast omelette this morning, it seemed appropriate to repeat the quote……..
I like to encourage people interested in gardening or planting to begin with a simple herb garden. Even if you live in a small apartment, you can have some herb pots.
Herbs will grow on a windowsill as long as you have some light and remember to cater to their thirst requirements and have well-drained soil.
97% of herbs don’t like wet feet and do like at least 5 hours of sunlight (or even just good light). But I have grown herbs in only about 2-3 hours of sunlight, then TLC and a small dose of good luck steps in.
There are some herbs that like dry conditions like some of the Mediterranean Herbs and there are some that grow in the semi-shade.
Trial & Error is a good Teacher (I know this as I have regular daily lessons, especially in the Error department) 😀
