Looking for a way to spice up your outdoor patio space? Try planting an herb garden! An herb garden is an easy, yet effective way to transform your outdoor patio space in more ways than one! Not only are herbs easy to grow and require little to no maintenance to thrive, they will also brighten up your space with beautiful green foliage and fill the air with vibrant aromas! First start with a plant box which can be made at home or purchased at your local hardware store. Be creative and look for unconventional items to use as a planter to give your space a whimsical feel. Fill your planter with potting soil leaving a 3 inch space from the top of the soil to the top of the planter container. Then select your favorite herbs such as basil, lavender, rosemary, chives, cilantro, thyme, lemongrass, or mint. All of these herbs grow easily in a small contained environment and all are similar in nature to grow and maintain. All of these can be purchased from your local grocery store or grown from seeds. Once you have planted your seedlings into your planter it is time to water. Most tend to over water so a good rule of thumb is to test the soil with your finger ensuring that the potting soil is moist and not saturated. When the soil feels dry to the touch it is time to water your herbs. Place your planter in direct sun and watch as they grow. The best part of growing your own herbs is getting to enjoy them in your favorite dishes! Cooking with fresh herbs will lend a fresh and aromatic flavor to any dish you prepare with them.
