If you're looking to grow some herbs and keep them flourishing in the garden, our top tips and guide should get you started nicely.
Sunshine really is the number on consideration when it comes to herbs; they really nurture the best flavour in your herbs- as well as encouraging great growth! Read below for some top tips for growing your herbs.
Indoors or outdoors?
Ultimately, herbs do very well with lots of sunshine and good drainage, which can be easier found outdoors than indoors. However, there’s still plenty of options for growing healthy herbs indoors. Ideally theyre still going to need 6 hours sunlight, so south facing positioning will be your friend! Basil, bay laurels, oregano and rosemary can all do well indoors. If you’re considering outdoors, chives, fennel, and mint can all do brilliantly in a warm UK climate.
If you’re looking for all year herbs, your best bets are things like rosemary, mint, chives, oregano, and cress (the fastest growing herb!). If, however, you’re looking for annual herbs, things like parsley, coriander, and basil are great starting points. These need a bit more warmth than perennial herbs, though they can flower quite easily so they do need a little bit more love and care!
