Re-growing aromatic herbs

A good way to discover herbs is to check out a supermarket's fresh produce section. And do you know that those little potted herbs are not only ready for consumption but also ready to be grown?

They are surprisingly easy to grow. You can re-grow rosemary, sage, basil, dill, thyme, chives, oregano or tarragon at sunny spots. Mint, cilantro, chervil, parsley or marjoram prefer to be in partial sun locations.

The diagram below shows you how...


Growing tips:

Grow herbs that you often use first. If space allows then grow others. Propagate new plants using the seeds, cuttings or divisions.

Study the requirements and check if your garden has the right conditions for the plant to flourish. Almost all herbs are suitable to be grown in pots, as well as in the ground.

Don't feed herbs heavily as this will only promote growth but not necessary the taste and aroma. Also avoid using chemical fertilisers or pesticides and use only organic ones.

When the plant has outgrown the pot, transplant it to another pot that's one size bigger. Alternatively, you can also plant it to the ground.
