Instant Herb Garden

Wednesday, 04 May 11 Sunny 14°C / 57°F

Well, almost. My “Complete Herb Garden” arrived from Parkers today. I had been thinking that I might plant them all out straight away but common sense prevailed. Instead, I’ve given the plants (each a small, separate plug) temporary homes in planting modules. Before the roots (some getting quite pot bound in their transport container) have had a chance to get too long for the modules I hope to have made a start on planning the best home for each – some out in the patch set aside as our main herb garden (after suitable hardening off) and others dotted about or even kept in the polytunnel for the most tender ones.
