Hey guys! Today’s post is a little different than I normally post but I like to garden & grow things. Last year I tried to go them and half didn’t grow..so I’m trying again this year!
The container I purchased to grow them in came with small round dirt pellets that expand when water is added. There were 72 in total and I filled them all.
I have 2 rows of Basil, 2 rows of Parsley, 2 rows of Oregano, 2 rows of Chives, 1 row of Spearmint, 1 row of Rosemary, and 2 rows of Lavender..I didn’t know if they will all going to grow since last year I had so much trouble so I planted more.
So far within the first week, The basil, oregano, and chives all came up. The parsley & rosemary came up with a week and a half. The one lavender has popped up within 2 weeks. The only one that has shown no signs yet is the spearmint, I’m hoping it comes up soon!
I’ve been searching pinterest a lot for ideas of how to use herbs..certain ones like rosemary & lavender help keep mosquitoes down I believe. The basil, parsley, and oregano I’m learning to cook with. Spearmint is pretty to smell. I just have a huge variety and I may start growing some more as I bought another tray.
If you have any tips or tricks when growing herbs, feel free to share them in the comments.
