Cheat Sheet Guide To Growing Your Own Herbs

I love adding fresh herbs to the recipes I make. They instantly add vibrant colour, freshness and a host of added health benefits.

However, I don't grow my own herbs. I keep meaning to give it a go, but never get around to it.

Instead I end up buying those sealed packs of herbs from the supermarket which often end up turning to mush in the fridge because I've forgotten about them!

So rather than waste money throwing away expensive packs of wilted herbs, I've decided it's time to start growing my own. But where to start?

This brilliant infographic tells you everything you need to know about growing your own herbs at home including Asian favourites such as coriander and lemongrass, and popular herbs such as parsley and mint. It also advises which herbs can be grown indoors and which should be planted outside.

  • What herbs to plant and when
  • The type of sunlight a herb needs
  • When to sow and harvest
  • Whether to water well or moderately
  • How far apart to spread the seeds/seedlings
  • Types of soil to use
  • A hardiness guide
  • Pests to be aware of
As you can see, the infographic is too large for this page! Clicking on the picture will take you to the Good to be Home website where you can see the information more clearly.
