    I have a rosemary bush that has completely taken over my herb garden. It’s a monster, but the hummingbirds are daily getting nectar from the residual blossoms even after our first hard freeze. How hard can I cut it back without killing it?

    What would grit be called in North America? Never seen that sold here before

    Hi 🙂 Do you have a link to buy the perfect soil for my aromatics plant? I have sage, rosemary and Basil all Outdoor, but they aren’t growing really well, I bought a cheap soil so I would like to change it for a good one, thanks 🙂

    What’s the secret to keeping the soil in pots fertile and fresh? It’s so hot where I am it is hard to keep plants in pots but I love what you have done here! Great videos. I enjoy every one of them.

    I planted parsley in a lot but when I took sprigs off for cooking, it didn’t grow back! What am I doing wrong?

  16. S1iznc1d3 on January 7, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Good idea putting broken pot pieces over large drain hole.

  17. Gena Tools on January 7, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I have one question though. It’s a bit unrelated though, but why do you put multiple seeds in one hole when you plant seeds.

  18. Kellie on January 7, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    Sometimes broken pot pieces in the bottom will block draining..use a coffee filter!! 🙂

  19. Wingedshadowwolf on January 7, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I didn’t know parsley likes shade, that might explain why it did so well indoors!

  20. Jeremy Dowd on January 7, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Very nice arrangement and helpful tips. My herbs are the most well-utilized parts of my garden. It’s a great savings over the expensive packages of cut herbs at the grocery.

  21. Britt Hanson on January 7, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    This was do helpful…Thank you!

  22. CaptTurbo on January 7, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    My tip for herbs is that the "h" is silent and "winta" has an "er" at the end. lol!!!!

  23. John Dope on January 7, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    My thyme plant will not grow… Help

  24. Gayathri Nagarajan on January 7, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    We have a beautiful vegetablr greens and herbs terrace garden too

  25. Willof TheWisp on January 7, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Thank goodness! Finally "herb" being pronounced correctly.
    I fear my pots are too small for my plans and I did it the wrong way round, bought random herbs that I liked without first checking their growing needs so out of the eight or so I chose I can only use three in the same pot. Trust me to pick greedy herbs and wild flowers 🙄
    So lavender munstead, chamomile nobilis and purple sage in one pot. Garden mint in an oblong pot of its own. lemon balm, I guess, on its own too? As is mint family also
    Then hyssop, valerian and catmint … No idea, I suppose I need to look for some larger pots.
    Rose, wallflower and sweet peas all in their own pots too. I’d put the catmint with the Rose but I doubt I’d find a pot big enough. Could I start them together and move them into their own pots as they grow?

    I have the garden planner app and like it but it seems the online program has more features and is easier to navigate. Do I need to pay for that software as well, or can I use the account I set up to access it for free?
