How to Start with Herbs-Introduction
Welcome to learning how to grow a flourishing herb garden
with a large variety of herbs.
I’m so excited to have you as a valued member of this herb gardening course.
As someone who has grown herbs for nearly 20 years, I’m thrilled to share what I have learned with you so you can be successful with growing herbs, whether you have a small space or acreage.
I have grown herbs gardens at three different homes and my latest garden became the most elaborate, with more than 50 different plants. Of course, you can start quite simple or be as elaborate as you want.
Bonus: I have a special bonus to send your way as a surprise that will give you some ideas on how to harvest the herbs you are growing and what you can do with that harvest.
Also, there is a ‘graduation’ bonus at the completion of the course, so look for that at the end of the course
What to Expect in the Course
Ok, let’s get started. What kinds of herbs can you grow in your garden? The choices are almost endless, but just to give you an example, I’ll tell you what I’ve grown in my garden.
There’s garden sage, purple sage, bronze fennel, catmint, soapwort, creeping variegated thyme, woolly lamb’s ears, hollyhock, mother of thyme, lemon thyme, oregano, sweet marjoram, parsley, coriander, salad burnet, agastache, sweet woodruff, wood betony, red valerian, lupine, columbine, echinacea, lady’s mantle, speedwell, lavender, bergamot, yarrow, chives, borage, hyssop and jasmine. Whew!
You’re probably familiar with some of these and may wonder about others. Of course, your herb garden doesn’t need very many herbs or be elaborate.
