Growing your own herbs appeals to the novice gardener, the small-space gardener, and the organic cook. Easy to grow, low maintenance and inexpensive, herbs are both attractive and practical in the garden. In this book, Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell provides all the information you need for a healthy harvest. Start with a reference guide to the easiest herbs to grow in containers, then learn about growing from seed, find out how to choose healthy seedlings if buying from a garden centre or nursery, and get useful tips and techniques on how to feed and deal with pests organically. Over thirty step-by-step projects show you how to prepare your container and plant it up - choose from terracotta pots, recycled containers, hanging baskets, windowboxes and more. Whether you are gardening on a windowsill or balcony, or want to plant a few pots for outside the kitchen door, "Grow Your Own Herbs in Pots" shows you the healthy way to grow a harvest of herbs.
