With starter plants you can garden indoors all year long! My plants are also excellent for a greenhouse or south facing sunroom. As long as your plants have at least 6 hours of light, your plants will thrive, even during the winter! I propagate everything I grow. Of course you can also plant this collection outdoors too, as they are all perennials (comes back each year).

You’ll receive TWO OF EACH perennial herb starter plant:
1. Lemon Basil
2. Greek Oregano
3. Orange Mint
4. Lemon Balm
5. Sage, common
6. Thyme, common

Create an INSTANT HERB GARDEN! You’ll receive a total of 12 starter plants! Check out the individual images and you'll see that these cuttings each have a nice root system already developed.

The plants that you receive will be as pictured, or bigger. These transplants are the perfect size for transplanting into your garden now. Allow the plant to grow throughout the fall before harvesting from it. A plant tag is included for each plant. Also refer to all pictures as they are also part of the description. What you see is what you'll get.

CARING FOR YOUR PLANTS

Outside: Plant in a sunny location that gets at least 6 hrs. of sun with partial shade in the afternoon. The soil should be a sandy loam, with a handful of compost added to each planting hole prior to planting. Water in gently. Add 2” of mulch to retain moisture, keep down weeds and to protect the roots during the winter. Never let mulch touch the stem of the plants to prevent rotting. Herbs don’t need a lot of fertilizer. Just feed once in the spring with a diluted basic fertilizer.

Indoors: Place in a south facing window, Turn 1/4 way daily so that the plant grows evenly. Or place your plants under grow lights.

Also excellent for Hydroponics!

HARVESTING, DRYING AND STORAGE

Cut your herbs as needed. You may use them fresh or dried. To dry simply hang upside down in thin bunches (to prevent mildew) for one week, out of direct sun, and in a well ventilated area. Once dry, strip the herbs off of the stems, and store in a mason jar, in a cool dark place. Your dried herbs should last 2-3 years.

HYDROPONICS

Use a net pot about 3-4” depending on the system that you are using.

 CONTAINERS


Size: If you’d like to plant 2-3 herbs along with a tomato plant, then go for a 24” planter. If you are only planting 1-2 plants, then a 16” should do.


Sunlight: Make sure that your container is placed in an area that gets at least 6 hours of sun. Herbs do excellent in containers. Put a couple together along with a tomato and pepper plant, or create a mini herb garden in a raised bed. Also tuck herb plants among the flowers in your containers.


Watering: Containers dry out faster than plants in the ground. During high heat days, you may need to water your container twice a day. Always avoid getting the foliage wet to prevent fungal diseases. During hot weather, gently soak the pot early in the morning until water starts to run out from the bottom. Repeat in the evening, if needed. Use a Moisture meter to determine whether or not your plant needs watering.


Tip: Large containers do not always come with the bottom drain holes already punched out. Sometimes you’ll see the holes scored on the bottom. To pop out the holes so your pot drains, simply use a round head screw driver. You can also use a drill. If the pots don’t drain, the roots of your plants will rot and your plants will die.
