Grow your Own Mini Herb Garden Sustainably August 28 2016
Spring is the season of hope and new energy.
Everything is starting to slowly come to life again after winter hibernation.
It's also the best time to start planting for that herb garden you have always wanted. "I don't have a backyard," I hear you say. Pfff! Don’t let that deter you!
The next time you finish off a punnet of alfafa sprouts, remember to keep the plastic tub and lid.
Used alfalfa tubs makes a great seedling pot to get things started.
The plastic tubs are ideal as it already has holes at the bottom for drainage. The lid becomes a perfect planter dish to catch water.
By giving the empty tub another purpose, not only have we helped reduce landfill, we will also get to nurture our bodies with nature's rewards!
Once your little plant starts to outgrow it's tub, it can be transferred over to a larger decorative pot.
Remember, it's best to start small. Try growing herbs, edible flowers, strawberries on the windowsill and enjoy the fruits of your labour in spring :)
