Brown Thumb Herb Garden

transplanted herbs

My new container herb garden!

I have a notoriously brown thumb! I have killed even the hardiest of plants. But – I am turning over a new leaf! (Puntastic… I know…) I’m told that container gardening, especially for herbs is plenty easy. And my new apartment has this nifty greenhouse-like area in it so… no more excuses! I transplanted these guys today and will keep you posted on the outcome! For now, they smell and look great!

Here’s what I did:

I bought rosemary, thyme, sage, basil and parsley (not pictured) in biodegradable pots. I soaked each pot in water for a few minutes and filled each container 1/3 full with Miracle Gro Organic Potting Soil. I set each herb in a ceramic, draining pot and filled around the biodegradable container with potting soil. Packed down the potting soil and lightly covered the top of the plant. Then I placed them in a window and admired them!

Had I not been SO excited, I would have done some online research on transplanting herbs in biodegradable pots, but c’est la vie!
