For anyone that likes to cook or just enjoys the taste of fresh flavours. Herbs are easy, fast growing and don’t need a large space to grow.

Where to grow herbs?

  • Herbs don’t need a huge depth of soil which makes them perfect for pots, bowls or planters. You can choose the size of pot to the size of space you have.
  • Balcony, window box, or that corner on the terrace. Where it is easy to harvest when you cook.
  • They don’t need as much sun as vegetables, which makes them perfect for any spot that only gets a certain amount of sun per day. Half a day of sun is usually enough.

Plant your herbs.

  • As mentioned, herbs do not need a huge depth of soil, however make sure you use a premium potting mix to ensure nutrients.
  • Cover the soil with sugar cane mulch, it will protect and breaks down over time and enrich the soil.
  • Water, herbs should not dry out.

Herbs are fast growing, so you should be able to harvest within 4-6 weeks.

How to care for your herbs.

  • Keep cutting your herbs even if you are not using the produce. It will keep your plants fresh.
  • Cut away any flowers.
  • Feed fortnightly with liquid fertiliser. We recommend Powerfeed.
  • Most herbs are annual, and will not live through winter. However, some herbs will grow all year around. Mint, parsley, rocket, thymes.
