How to grow Herbs in Containers to use for cooking

Hi Gardening Friends

Here is some information that I think you can use for growing herbs in containers. So you can have them growing on your patio right outside your kitchen door and how fresh is that? Here is some information that can help you grow fresh herbs for you to use in cooking that would be the freshest

that you could have.possible and right outside your kitchen door.

Here is what you should do to have great herbs growing on your patio.

1. Figure out what kind of herbs you would want to grow?

Here are some herbs you could grow in containers.

Large Sweet Basil

Greek Oregano

Garden Thyme

Sage, Golden Sage

Rosemary

Stevia the Sweet plant

French Tarragon

Parsley Curled, or Italian

After you decide what type of herbs that you would want to grow?

Then pick out the containers that you would want to grow your herbs in?

Here are some suggestions for growing herbs in containers.

a. whiskey barrels

b. strawberries jars

c. decorative pots

d. Pots or containers that you would like to grow different types of herbs in.

any size big or small? You decide what you want to plant herbs in.

Now go to your local greenhouse or garden center and pickout the herbs that you want to plant. Also buy some potting soil types like Pro Mix or Mircle Gro

Potting Soil. Then bring them home and fill your container full of the potting soil and then plant your herbs. After you have the herbs planted take the container outside and soak the entire container with water. Keep the pot in

the shade until the herbs are well establish then you can set them on your patio and use the herbs when you are cooking.

I hope this information help all the gardeners that grow herbs and cook with them? If you try this would you give me a comment on how you did?

Sincerely

gardener den

      I love the idea. I already have parsley, mint, rosemary and thyme growing outside my kitchen door. I have tried growing basil, but it only lasts a few weeks and then it just dies. I also have lavander in the garden which sometimes I use for a recipe of apple and lavander jam!
