A small herb garden

I walked past Kmart today and saw they had a bunch of plants and herbs on sale. I’ve been wanting a few herbs for a long time, so I decided to buy some. I have lavender, rosemary, parsley and peppermint.

I hope I didn’t bring a bunch of bugs into the house when I potted them, and I hope I don’t kill these plants. I’m not so good with gardening, but I hope this is a venture that pays off!

  1. I have always been a little curious about herbs. I am not into gardening too much. But herbs may be a little fun. I wonder are herbs a good start. Maybe something the kids will enjoy too. Thanks for putting the thought into my head.

  2. I’m afraid our apartment would kill them. But I’d like to have herbs someday. My mother had a small herb garden which was quite useful.

  3. i bought a tiny grow-your-own basil pot from the dollar section at Target. i just planted it a couple days ago. i have a black thumb, though, so we’ll see if it grows anything:)

    Good luck with yours!

  4. I have a 9yo lavender plant in a pot on the porch. Even the leaves smell; it’s wonderful. The rosemary is about 3 years old and the same size, and gets used for cooking quite a bit.

    Enjoy your plants!

  5. The one herb that’s lasted the longest on my patio is my chives plant–honest, I do NOTHING and it just grows and grows. I’ve had it for 6 years and it’s great!

  6. In an apartment, I grew sage, parsley, cilantro/coriander, basil and chives in small pots with not much problem. I loved being able to be in the middle of cooking, then just pop out to my balcony to snip really-fresh herbs to season dinner!

    Last weekend, I finally put the remaining plants outside in the ground in my new garden!!

  7. Hers are very easy to grow. I like to plant hebs just to compliment other plants in my landscape.

  8. I think you have made a great investment. Fresh herbs are always a wonderful addition to the home. Just remember when your plants go to seed to collect them. This saves you money and you can share your seeds with friends and family.
