I’ve been home gardening for about 4 years and I have learned a lot about the importance of soil nutrition, nitrogen, composting, manure, rotating what I grow and more. I wish I had found some tips for herb gardening sooner and I still struggle with getting my cilantro to grow consistently.
That being said, I was recently reading some container gardening articles and I found some information from Sunset magazine, online. Take a look and if you are starting your own garden, these tips and suggestions might save you a lot of time and energy.
One thing that really helps is using starter plants, especially if you are new to gardening. I personally love the challenge of growing from seed, but as a new gardener, there is nothing wrong with using starter plants to get you going. Then as you progress in your knowledge of home gardening and soil nutrition, you can start germinating seeds of your own from the produce you grow.
