Have a Home Herb Garden by the End of This Article

It is so easy and so simple to have your own home herb garden that you will have one by the end of this article. But for this to work you have to know you want a home herb garden by the end of this article, so are you sure? Good then the only catch is (oh you just knew there was a catch didn’t you? Don’t worry it won’t cost you a dime and it’s not a big one) you have to follow along with me because to have one by the end of this article we have to do it together. Ready?

Let’s jump in the car and go to the nursery. No stop, don’t go reading forward remember that was our deal you have to do this with me otherwise you will get to the end of the article and have no garden which will make a liar out of me and I don’t want to lie to you or disappoint you but you do have to hold up your end of the bargain.

Okay here we are at the nursery, yes that was fast. You can either plant your herbs in the ground or grow them in pots. Let’s do this in pots. Get yourself 3 pots with drainage holes of course, and let’s get a bag of potting soil. Small pots will do, about 6 inches tall.

Now we will need to get the herbs in the little tiny pots (3 inches high by 2 inches). These are called the seedlings or we can get packets of seeds. Let’s get the packets of seeds. Either way will work but if you plant your own seeds it’s more fun to see the seedlings grow from your own seeds that you planted. And don’t worry if you do what I show you they will all grow just fine. So figure out what 3 herbs you would like and then get the packets.

Bring the stuff home and open the bag of potting soil and pour it into the 3 pots to a couple inches below the top. Pack the dirt down slightly in each pot and then sprinkle water over them. Open up your packets and sprinkle the seeds over the moist dirt, one packet per pot and you can do just a half of each packet and keep the rest for later.

Now put some more potting soil on top of the herbs, about an inch is fine, in fact even a little less then that will do. Now pack that top inch down slightly. You can sprinkle the top if you want but it’s not necessary the seeds are in the moist dirt already and will take root.

Put the 3 pots in a sunny window sill and you now officially have your very own home herb garden and look we haven’t even finished the article yet either. How easy was that? Incredibly easy.

Water every day or 2 and very shortly, just a few days, you will see your seedlings coming up through the soil and that will be a fun moment (to see your little baby seedling first starting to crawl. I told you it would be more fun to start with your own seeds). In 2 weeks they will be standing I mean will be above ground with little tiny leaves and in just one short month after you initially planted your seeds they are well about ground and even ready to picked as needed to spice up your food. Wasn’t that incredibly easy? That’s how easy it is to have your own home herb garden.
