What is included in this herb kit?
This Organic Gourmet Herb Collection includes four different herb starter plants in 3.5" nursery pots: English Thyme, Arp Rosemary, Spicy Greek Oregano and Garden Sage. An herb-growing tipsheet is also included.
Can I grow these in the pots they come in?
The 3.5" plastic pots these herbs are grown in are a starter size. For good herb production they should each be repotted into a separate pot (minimum 6" and up to 18" if grown on an outside deck). They will also grow well planted outside in the garden in well-drained soil in USDA Zones 5 and up.
Do you have any more tips for growing herbs?
Most herbs will grow well with the same sunlight (minimum 6-8 hours), fertility, soil, growing conditions, and cultural techniques required by vegetables. While herbs can be grown indoors, they do best when grown outside where air circulation is good. If growing inside, try to give them a few hours a week of full sun (unblocked by a window pane).
Most herbs do not need high fertility, so don't over-fertilize. High fertility tends to produce excessive soft foliage that is poor in flavor. Slow release organic plant fertilizers work well.
