Planning a Container Herb Garden
Herbal garden Idea have many choices of climate and soil – ranging from the hot sun and dry sandy soil that is favored by Mediterranean-derived herbs such as anise, basil and oregano, to partial shade and rich, wet soil that is favored by plants such as love and mint .
Of course you have to do with conditions that are less than ideal for the many herbs you plant, but when you plan your herbal garden. Try to choose a site that offers at least a simple range between full sunlight and partial shade. As I have suggested, it is best to place your container herb garden near the kitchen door.
If fresh stems or stems from your garden easily reach them when you cook, you might resist the temptation to choose a bottle of dried herbs from your shop’s closet. Needless to say, fresh herbs are far more fragrant and flavourome than those that have dried for several years. While herbs vary as to whether they prefer sun or shade, most do love sheltered places, so if you can arrange to place a container herbal garden on your kitchen wall, this will definitely help.
A good idea for an herbal garden
A good idea for an herbal garden is to build a bed with stones or bricks. There are a number of advantages here. First, the soil will be dried well and dry, and this is important for many plants. Those who like moist soil, can plant at the bottom of the beds. Second, elevated beds require a little more hunchback to plant, care for and pick. And third, it provides a wider surface area for plants that break down to trace the wall. However, if you build a bed that is elevated on the kitchen wall. Do not build it higher than the house frame or you will find yourself eating herbs in a humid house.
Because many herbs are delicate and beautiful plants. Another idea that you can consider is growing them on small rocks (maybe miniature versions of Covelo herbal gardens). If you are in the area of sandstone, the colors pink, red, ocher, and white from the stones you use on the rocks will complement the green vegetables that are rich in spices. Rockery, too, will have the advantage of being dried well. Maybe you won’t be able to store plants that like moist like mint on rocks. If so, grow your mint in the moist shade found at the end of most gardens.
