Herbs in a Bag

>> Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Here’s a neat little trick I found while reading through Farmers Almanac. The article was written by Jane Baumgartner

The herbs recommended are basil, chives, marjoram, oregano, parsley, sage, or thyme.

Here are the easy steps to get your herbs growing: Herbs in a Bag!
  1. Lay the bag of soil flat on the ground.
  2. Poke a few drainage holes in the top surface.
  3. Roll the bag over, then cut a few holes in the new top surface.
  4. Insert herb seedlings into the holes and firm the soil around the roots.
  5. Water and fertilize as you would a regular garden bed.
  6. Set the bed into a wheelbarrow or child’s wagon and move it into and out of the sunlight as needed.

Now, with time, regular watering and fertilizing, and some spring sunshine, you can look forward to harvesting herbs from this couldn’t-be-easier garden!
Thank you for sharing Jane.
