    Do you have any tips on how to preserve any excess herbs.

    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.

    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?

    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 🙂

    Good idea putting broken pot pieces over large drain hole.

    This came just in time, I’m currently planning which herbs and beneficial flowers I’d like to grow this year in my raised beds.

    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?

    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. Fraser Norton on August 5, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    hey! I am looking to plant a small herb garden in a pallet planter in a small courtyard – is now (march) a good time to transfer my herb plants from their small plastic pots to the larger outdoor pallet container? thanks!

  17. Lina Piedrahita on August 5, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    OH my gosh! You are great at this!! Hope i can as much as i can from you 🙂 Please keep it on! I really enjoy your videos, your accent and your plants

  18. Suzan Hill on August 5, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    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?

  19. Retama on August 5, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    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.

  20. Sheetal Kumar on August 5, 2021 at 10:11 pm

  21. John Dope on August 5, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    My thyme plant will not grow… Help

  22. George Alderson on August 5, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Very encouraging, especially the admission that everyone has failures now and then. I have just planted some herbs and standing back to see what happens!

  23. Gayathri Nagarajan on August 5, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    We have a beautiful vegetablr greens and herbs terrace garden too

  24. Wingedshadowwolf on August 5, 2021 at 10:18 pm

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

  25. Kellie on August 5, 2021 at 10:18 pm

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

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

  28. Gena Tools on August 5, 2021 at 10:21 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.
