​Successful Herb Gardening:

Herbaceous Perennials

Herbaceous perennials, more commonly referred to as herbs, are an integral part of healthy and mindful living. Herbs can add great flavor to food and make delicious teas. Additionally, many herbs possess healing properties and have the capacity to improve overall health. However, herbs can be expensive and difficult to come by. Instead of tracking down and purchasing herbs, why not grow your own?

Creating your own herb garden can be a great way to save money, enjoy the benefits of herbs, and have the great experience of starting and maintaining your very own herb garden.

You should start growing your herb garden from pre-purchased plants. You may want to grow your herbs directly from seeds, and it’s true that a certain satisfaction comes from seeing something sprout from one tiny seed. However, it can be very difficult to grow herbs from one measly seed. Growing herbs from seeds can actually be quite complicated, and when you’re just a beginner, it’s usually better to get a feel for the process with small seedlings rather than seeds that may never grow.

Be sure to choose the right herbs. Do research on the kind of herbs that you would like to grow and make sure that they will have the ability to grow in the climate where you live. Take note that if the climate isn’t right for the herbs, most of them can successfully be grown indoors. Note that there are many different varieties available of the different classifications of herbs. The most important thing is to do research before purchasing to be sure you get the kind you’d like.

One of the biggest mistakes of beginning gardeners is that their gardening procedures involve too much watering. Herbs only need a moderate amount of water, and not nearly as much as the typical house plant.

While incredibly useful, herbaceous perennials can also become a nuisance if allowed. If your gardening space is outdoors, be sure to take extreme care where you plant your herbs. If their growth and space is not properly managed, herbs can quickly take over a large space, detracting from, and even killing other plants in the area. Even if you’d like to garden outside, it’s probably a good idea to pot your herbs regardless. Potting the herbs will but a limit on the extent to which their massive roots can expand and ensure the safety of the other foliage in your garden.
