Stock up on herb seeds. A few of the most popular are mint – great for drinks and desserts as well as for brewing on summer days, and kitchen essentials chives, sage, thyme, rosemary, parsley, cilantro and basil.
To do this, use items you can easily find in your home. Choose to recycle. Reuse cans, jars, yogurt or ice cream cups and remember to make drainage holes in the bottom.
Consider greener solutions as well. Choose biodegradable materials. These can include not only toilet paper rolls, egg cartons, and egg shells, but also eggshells and nut shells.
Fill them with a little fertilizer and soil (you can buy it at any florist or DIY store) to half height, place the seeds in it and water regularly. You can use a spray bottle.
However, there are a few rules to keep in mind. Harvest them regularly, choosing leaves from the very tip of the plant. This will help it to grow. Add freshwater algae fertilizer to the soil in which you sow your herbs. This is an organic additive that strengthens plants. When the plants have grown, transplant them into larger pots, preferably each one separately.
Watching the effects of your work, the growth of stems and leaves and then using your own plants for cooking will give you an incredible amount of joy and satisfaction. Enjoy the aroma and taste of fresh herbs!
