Are you thinking of starting an herb garden? Here are the many ways you can grow your own herbs.

If you don’t want to buy grown herbs because of the cost, grow your own herbs from seeds

Find a nice container with proper drainage like a yogurt carton, clay pot, or egg carton. Make sure there are holes in the bottom for drainage purposes.

Wet the soil in the container before planting the seeds in the pot. The general rule is to cover them with one to three times their size.

There are usually instructions at the back of the seed packet as to how much sunlight a particular seed needs. Follow the directions so you’ll know where to place it in your garden.

Plants can’t survive without sunlight, so make sure they’re exposed to it.

Do not forget to water your seeds regularly, you don’t want them drying out. The general rules are don’t overwater, and the way to know when it’s time to water your seeds is when the soil is already dry.

Here’s a list of yummy herbs you can grow on your own:

Arugula
Basil
Cilantro
Dill
Mint
Oregano
Parsley
Rosemary

The great thing about an herb garden is you’ll always have that extra punch when you’re cooking a meal at home. “I got the basil from my own garden outside,” is a great line to say.

Herbs are great with chicken, beef, pork, eggs, tomato sauces, pizza, soups, stews, and curries.
