Gardening Tips & Flowers : How to Small-Container Garden (Kitchen Herbs)


Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment
we’re going to talk about how to small container garden using kitchen herbs. Now there’s all
different types of herbs in the world, and so when I decide what types of herbs to put
in my small kitchen herb garden, I always look through my drawers and find out, and
my cabinets, what types of herbs do I use in my house. And then I decide from there.
And remember that you have to give your herb some light, so you’ve gotta select a room
that’s got enough light. So if you have a kitchen that only has one window, you might
count on artificial light because they really want more than one window of light. And I
found that they do best in the morning sun. Sometimes if it’s in a hot afternoon sun location,
they get kind of fried when the sun comes through. So, think about those prospects or
those aspects when you’re designing your garden. This herb garden’s been outside, it has been
on my deck, and we just trim that back, the plants, as we need ’em and now it’s starting
to freeze at night, so I want to try to get them to live through the winter. So I brought
’em inside and they might go through a little bit of shock and I might lose a little bit
of ’em, but so far they’re looking good. And this is spearmint. I love to use it with tea,
or ice water. It’s a great plant and then there’s different types of thyme which are
great with any kind of meat or lamb. And then oregano is wonderful with any kind of pizza
sauce or spaghetti sauce, and then there’s other types of rosemary and tarragon, I love
tarragon too. It’s a great, great addition to any type of beef. So a kitchen garden or
a small herb garden is really easy to create and you don’t really need to have property
or need to even have a patio. As long as you have a sunny window, you can find the herbs
that you enjoy and just put ’em on a windowsill. You can just put one container on a plate,
and the windowsill as well. Water ’em well, but let ’em dry out in between ’cause you
don’t want to let ’em sit in water. And trim out the leaves as they turn brown or they
don’t look good because herbs love to regrow, so the more you trim ’em down, the more they
grow, and the more you succeed, and the more you can enjoy them.
