Growing herbs from plants

if you decide to start your herb garden with plants,  choose healthy bushy plants that are not spindly or weak.

Prepare your place for these plants with good potting mix if you are using pots or good soil with compost or potting mix added if necessary for planting herbs in the garden.

Give the herbs a good soaking before you transplant them so you reduce the stress on the plants.

Hollow out a space that is bigger than the herb plant and its surrounding soil

Put the plant in the hole and fill the rest of the hole with soil or compost.

Press down well so the plant is firmly in place.

Water again and watch it grow!

Contrary to popular 20thC belief, buying a parsley plant does not necessarily mean you will get pregnant!
