Herb Garden Starter
A starter herb garden makes a nice gift for someone who is just
moving into a new home or has just finished renovating an old kitchen.
Itís practical, looks and smells great.
First you need a container of some sort. We used a rectangular terra
cotta pot, but you can use a large, round pot or an old tin of any
shape or size.
Fill the container half way with a nice, loamy soil to give the
plants a good start.
Then add a selection of mature herb plants. In our herb garden we
- green basil
- opal basil (great for purple pesto)
- leafy parsley
- summer savoury
Arrange the plants in the pot to make it look full and lush. Then
you may wish to add cast iron markers with the names of the plants.
Failing that you can use wooden sticks onto which you write the
names of the herbs.
