Plant a herb garden

Do you like to use fresh herbs in your cooking? Plant a herb garden in a container.

You can put it in a sunny window. Or, you can put it on your deck or patio.

Enjoy fresh herbs all summer!

What you need:

  • pot with holes in the bottom
  • potting soil
  • herbs
  • trowel
  • water

What you do:

1. Put soil in the bottom half of your pot.

2. Arrange your herbs. Make sure they are at least 20 cm apart.

3. Fill the pot with soil.

4. Pat the soil down.

5. Water.

Some herbs like it hot and dry. Some like more water. Put herbs that like the same things together.
