Growing Herbs

Posted: 13/04/2017 at 18:27

There's nothing wrong with topsoil, it's what all my plants grow in, just not in pots.

You need something free draining for the thyme, rosemary and sage

Herb pruning is very much about snipping off pieces and using them 

I would go light on the fertilizers, the harder herbs are grown the stronger the taste and the hardier they are. This may not apply to Vietnamese coriander, I don't know what that is.

I don't understand why people are so anti this and that.I don't do Pinterest, because you can't do everything but if it suits, why not.

I'm a member of a number of Facebook groups. Much anti Facebook stuff here as well. All these things are what you make them. They can be shallow drivel or in-depth study. Just like this forum

I tend to ignore revived threads as they're so often resurrected to advertise something 

I wouldn't use a forum for research, other than to ask a question on one. It would take too long to wade through to the end of a thread for any sort of conclusion
