Growing your own herbs appeals to the novice gardener, the small-space gardener, and the organic cook. Easy to grow, low maintenance, and inexpensive, herbs are both attractive and practical in the garden. In this book, Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell provides all the information you need to grow your own herbs. First, choose your herb with a quick reference guide to the easiest herbs to grow in containers. Learn how to grow from seed, get advice on how to choose healthy seedlings when buying from a gardening store or nursery, and gain useful tips and techniques on how to feed and deal with pests organically. Next, select your container–terracotta pots, recycled packaging, hanging baskets, windowboxes, and more. Over 30 step-by-step projects show you how to prepare the container and plant it up. There are also tips on protecting perennial herbs over winter. Whether you are gardening on a windowsill or balcony, or want to plant a few pots for outside the kitchen door, Grow Your Own Herbs in Pots shows you the best way to grow herbs.
