How to take care of Herbs

Taking care of herbs in a garden involves several steps to ensure that they grow well and produce healthy leaves and flowers. Here are some tips to help you take care of them:

1. Soil preparation: Herbs prefer well-draining soil that is rich in nutrients. Before planting, prepare the soil by removing any weeds and adding compost or aged manure to improve the soil quality.

2. Watering: Herbs require regular watering, especially during dry periods. Water the plants deeply but avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.

3. Fertilizing: Herbs benefit from occasional feeding with a balanced fertilizer.  Remember that using our Push N’Grow Seed Sticks there is no need to add fertilizer. Our organic and all natural fertilizer is already adhered to the stick.  

4. Pruning: Regular pruning helps to encourage new growth and keep the plants compact. Remove any dead or damaged leaves, and pinch back the tips of the stems to promote branching.

5. Pest control: Herbs are generally pest-resistant, but they can be susceptible to some insect pests such as aphids and spider mites. Use only natural pest control methods such as introducing beneficial insects or using organic insecticides.

6. Harvesting: Harvesting herbs regularly helps to promote new growth and keeps the plants from becoming too woody. Harvest leaves and stems in the morning when the essential oils are most concentrated.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your herb garden thrives and provides you with an abundant supply of fresh herbs for cooking and other uses.
