Tips for an herb garden:

    • Plant in full or mostly sun
    • Choose a well drained location (herbs don’t like wet feet)
    • Mix in some sand when planting (in clay soil) for better drainage
    • Place taller growing herbs in the rear as a backdrop such as lavender, rosemary and pineapple sage
    • Plant chocolate mint in a container for control
    • Mulch herbs with aged compost or aged manure mix
    • Allow soil to dry out between watering
    • When harvesting for recipes, select oldest growth first
