Start with easy herbs like coriander, chives, mint and thyme. According to Bunnings’ Greenlife buyer Sharyn Petrzela, herbs like rosemary, basil and oregano can get a little bigger and you may need to plant them in a bigger pot.
Use premium potting mix to plant the seedlings in a self-watering pot – or place a saucer underneath. The ideal pot size is between 150mm and 200mm.
Keep your plants healthy with these tips:
- Turn your plants around occasionally so they get even growth.
- Take your herb plants outside from time to time for some direct sunlight.
- Don’t over water your herbs, and ensure they have good drainage.
- Give your plants a boost with liquid fertilizer once a fortnight.
- Trim leaves regularly for dense growth.
