How to plant an herb garden

Plant an Herb Garden


Make sure your pot or container has a few good drainage holes. If the container does not have holes, you will need to drill about 3 holes in the bottom of it.

Fill container with potting soil. Leave about 3-4 inches of space in the container.

Plan where you want your herbs to go in the container. Leave about 6 inches in between the plants.

Dig holes for your plants. The holes should be deep enough to completely cover the roots.

Remove plants from original containers and gently break up the roots.

Place plants in the holes and fill in with potting soil. Gently pack the soil in to support the plants.

Sprinkle some fertilizer around the plants.

Water plants until water is coming out of the drainage holes.

Place container in an area where it will have a good amount of sunlight.

Continue to water the plants everyday and fertilize them once a week.
