Growing Herbs In Spring
Spring is known to be the best season to plant your seeds for the herb garden. In spring the soil has warmed up, creating an inviting atmosphere for the seeds to grow in. Starting your herb garden in spring allows a good amount of time to establish the plant. The herb can have sturdy roots for winter. Planting in spring gives you seeds and the foliage is beautiful by the time fall arrives.
Some of the herbs perfect for spring planting include:
Out of these, peppermint, oregano, rosemary, thyme and sage are the herbs you can plant indoors and later transfer to outdoors in containers. Once established, some of these herbs can live outdoors all year long.
The basic care tips for growing these herbs are:
- Herbs thrive under the sun. Plant them where they can get enough sun, a sunny part of your balcony or a window that gets good light.
- The soil of these plants need water, not the leaves.
- Either water in the morning or in the evening, so the water retains and plants don't dry up quickly in the sun.
- Avoid overwatering. Moist soil is good. Sitting water is not healthy for your herbs. Check for proper functioning drainage holes in your pots.
