Plans for Herb Garden Sites

It's relatively easy designing plans for herb garden sites. Your first decision is location. Do you have an available spot outside? Would you be better off with an indoor herb garden? What herbs should you choose?

The preceding questions must first be answered before plans for herb garden sites can be drawn up. Once you've decided on these factors, it's time to choose your herbs. Are you planning on using them in food you prepare? Will they be strictly for aesthetic beauty? Many people grow or take echinacea for the health benefits it is suggested to have. Why I've even seen echinacea aromatherapy candles. In my perennials garden echinacea is planted for its beautiful and vibrant color. Your next decision relies on soil quality.

Does the soil you want to plant your herbs in have a decent drainage system? Will you need to add supplements or fertilizers. Answer these questions and you will be on your way to creating plans for herb garden sites you can enjoy for a lifetime
