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 provices all the information you need to grow your own herbs. First, choose your herb with a quick reference guide to the easiest herbs to grow in containers. Learn how to grow from seed, get advice on how to choose healthy seedlings when buying from a gardening store or nursery, and gain useful tips and techniques on how to feed and deal with pests organically. Next, select your container--terracotta pots, recycled containers, hanging baskets, windowboxes, and more. Over 30 step-by-step projects show you how to prepare the container and plant it up. There are also tips on protecting perennial herbs over winter. 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 best way to grow herbs.
