The Herb Garden Guide 35


the herb garden

Herbs have been around since ancient times. From the beginning, herbs have served different kinds of purposes. They have been used to treat illnesses as well as in cooking. Some were even believed to have magical powers. Do you want to have your own herb garden? Here are a few ideas on how to get started.

Planning The Herb Garden

Consider the types of herbs you want to plant. Would you like annuals, biennials or perennials? How much space will they take up in your garden? If you aren’t sure, you can always buy a book that can give you the right information on what specific plants you are planning to grow.

List or draw your garden on paper first. Separate the annuals from the perennials so when the time comes and you will have to pull out the annuals, you won’t disturb the perennials. Perennials can be planted around the edge of your garden so that when it is time to till your garden you won’t have such a hard time.

Another thing you have to remember is when you start planting, plant the tall ones at the back and the shorter ones in front. Also, provide your plants with enough space to grow. The proper position should help you with this.

Some Design Ideas

One idea is to have a square herb bed. You can have your square bed divided into four by two paths crossing at mid-point measuring 3 feet. You can border it with stones or bricks. A wooden ladder can also do the trick. You can lay it down on your garden and plant your herbs between its rungs. You can also go with having a wagon wheel bed. Planting here is like planting with a wooden ladder. Plant your herbs in between the wagon wheel’s wedges.

Get Your Plants Growing

Of course, different plants have different needs. This is the reason why you have to decide on the herbs you want to plant in the planning stage. This can better help you find out how you should care for your plants. When starting with seeds, remember the rules for its germination and soil temperature. If you see the seedlings sprout, make sure to check the plants’ air circulation, humidity, and sunlight. When you start seeing some leaves appear, allow proper spacing.

One of the easiest plants to grow are herbs. All you have to do is just provide them with an effective drainage, sunlight, enough moisture or humidity, and some fertile soil. Even by just minimally meeting these requirements they will produce a good harvest.
