I love the convenience of planting herbs at home. I can never use up those refrigerated packaged ones from the store plus they’re expensive! So I love that I can I just snip off the amount of herbs I need and enhance any dish that I add it to. Today, I’ve partnered with Miracle-Gro Nature’s Care to show you how simple it is to grow your own kitchen herb garden at home! #sponsored

I’m planting 3 of my favorite herbs: Rosemary, Basil, and Parsley!

I’m starting with these galvanized planters that I got at the hardware store. I love the farm style look of it. If you’re using a different planter make sure it’s 6-8 inches deep. Shallow pots will dry out too quickly and not give enough room for the herbs to grow. Also when planting your herbs, make sure to use containers with drainage holes. This helps to avoid moisture buildup and possible mold.

For extra drainage and to help the soil to not fall through the drainage hole I’m going to be adding some gravel or stones. You can find this at any hardware store.

Now I’m going to add in my potting mix. Good quality potting mix is key to growing herbs in a container. I’m using Nature’s Care Organic and Natural Potting mix. It has peat moss and shredded coconut husk in it! On top of the gravel I’ll add a little bit of the potting mix, about halfway up, then I’ll carefully take out the herb starts and place them in the soil. I’ll make sure that the crown is above soil level then I’ll fill in the rest with potting mix.

When the herbs are planted in a container it’s important to keep the soil a little bit damp. Don’t over water or let them sit in water at the bottom.

I’ll water it well and place it in a sunny location. A good place is right by the kitchen window where it’s only a few steps away when I need them. The more you harvest the more the herbs will grow back and give you delicious and vibrant flavor.

If you see flowers appear make sure to remove them because they can cause the herbs to taste bitter.

Planting my own kitchen herb garden ensures that I can have fresh herbs all year round!
