How To Start Your Own Herb Garden

Started by Pandora. Last reply by Demeter Mar 19, 2016. 5 Replies

The rewards of growing herbs are far greater than with other plants. Other plants in the garden are mostly planted for their decorative value. Herbs, on the other hand, can also be used for a myriad of other purposes that stretch from flavouring…Continue

Your welcome Raya. It is always a pleasure to correspond with you.

Comment by Raya yesterday

Hi Enigma - thanks for responding.  I was strongly considering mint since I can use it in teas and pastries and such.  Onions and chives are all plentiful at the store throughout the year. Since posting I've considered growing my own turmeric root also.  All my store downstairs carries is the powder and I learned they ran out and won't have any for a bit.  So growing my own is a strong possibility.  Rosemary sounds good also.  I know for sure dandelions.  I'm thinking though that growing mint will cause an influx of bees etc so I will prob grow a pot or two of heather.  Thanks again Enigma - you helped make up my mind.

Stay safe

Raya

Comment by Enigma on Tuesday

Raya, here is some random info about sunlight. In winter, indoor space is used to start new seedlings or cuttings to be placed outside in the spring, using natural sunlight to ripen the plants. Sunlight tends to reach more of the plant, if you’re growing in the direct sun.  Unlike growing indoors, the bottom of the plant will be almost as developed as the top. The best tasting herbs come from being grown outdoors, nothing beats the natural sunlight. The best spot is one that gets full winter sun from mid-morning to midafternoon, at least from 10-4, preferably 8-5. This will be really asking for a lot if you live north of 30 degrees latitude since days are short in winter. Raya you may have to keep your herbs all in pots small enough for you to move so that you can shift them on your balcony as the sunlight shifts. Some books say the plants respond better to morning-only sun, verses afternoon-only sun, so if you must choose between the two, morning sun may be better. Plants should get at least 5 hours of direct sun every day, some say 3-4 hours is enough. and 5 more hours of indirect light. Chervil, Italian parsley (doesn’t like being transplanted), mints, onion chives, rosemary, are just a few of the many herbs that will do well with these hours of sunshine.

Sounds like a good plan Raya.

Comment by Raya on Sunday

Hi all - I'm wondering if I can get some opinions from you.  I have a very small balcony that gets full sun on the right side in the morning and full sun on the left side in the afternoon.  It's also gets very hot when in full sun. Since I live up in Canada on the prairies where it gets very very cold in winter I have to take my plants into the apartment where there is very limited light for them.  I would like to grow some herbs that have an everyday use but in no way can they be related to ragweed.  I had a large fish tank given to me that I plan to grow dandelions in.  We get a lot of spraying for moths, tent caterpillars etc so I can't pick the dandelions that are growing wild. When the city is going to spray I can cover the tanks. I also have a smaller fish tank that I want for herbs.  Since I can't move these heavy fish tanks around whatever herbs I plant will have to accept the limited conditions of either morning sun or afternoon sun.  In winter I can dig them up and put them in pots to grow in the shade of my apartment.  Does anyone have any idea what kind of herbs would suit these conditions??? Any ideas at all???

I'm glad you are feeling better Amethyst.

Thank you Enigma.  All did go well.  Recovery was long and I’m just now getting up to full speed with reading and online stuff.  Couldn’t really look anything for a while.  Electronic screens were murder but all is well now. Just need to get a new and proper script for my glasses. It’s been 3 months since surgery and I think it’s safe to get new ones now.  Haha!   

How have you been?   I trust holidays went well for you.  We’ve had a couple of holidays and another is rightsround the corner.  That wheel does turn.  Time to start planning and preparing gardens for some of us.

Hi AS, Hope all goes well with the eye surgery.

Comment by Amethyst Samia on October 16, 2018 at 9:07am

Hi all.  I’m back.  Briefly.  I’m gonnacbe out for a bit due to some eye surgery so I won’t be able to be online.  I have a strict prohibition of looking at computer screens or evencreading.  Not sure how long that will last.  Anyway I’ll be out.  Again.  

Beryl you can always postvtje link to the ginger syrup to the cold & flu remedy page to the right just under true members area.  And everyone feel free to post on the pages.  I’ve tried for a bit to get all the discussions sorted and posted where applicable but as you can imagine it’s a massive job.  I need to resume that after surgery.  

Anyway its helpful to have everytjing in one okace IMO.  TIs group is so large and there is so much information I hate to see it get devoured in the comments.  

Hooe everuone stays well until I get back.  And please forgive any typos. Vision problems make it hard to see & correct.  Anyway, look forward to talking again soon.
