Herbs give your cooking amazing flavours but they can be expensive to buy and usually you don’t need the whole bunch in your recipe so it gets wasted.
The solution is to start your own herb garden and grow the herbs you use most frequently.
You don’t need a lot of room, or even a garden! Herbs can be planted indoors on window ledges, on balcony’s, in pots or in a garden bed.
What you’ll need:
- Pots (if using)
- Potting mix
- Herb seedlings
- Buy pots (or reuse old plant pots), potting mix and some herb seedlings.
- Fill pots with soil and plant each herb in a pot.
- Water herbs and place in a sunny position. Herbs grow quickly with sun and water.
- Pick herbs as required for your cooking.
We currently have sage, basil, rosemary, parsley, mint and thyme growing in our garden and it’s so handy, I love picking some fresh for my cooking and the flavours are amazing. We have our herbs in old plastic plant pots which is cheap and also reuses the old pots.
