Add spice to your cooking using your own Spice Garden
There are many ways to grow herbs and spices at home. You may have different levels of success depending on the location for your garden.
Did you know that mulch is good to use in herb gardens?
The reason is that it keeps the soil moist and keeps soil away from the leaves that you will be using in your cooking.
Some herbs are better with full sun exposure. For example, my personal favorite - Basil - needs full sun, rich well-drained soil and lots of water.
There are many varieties of basil that you can grow. Cinnamon basil is especially good.
Oregano and Rosemary also need full sun.
Examples of Herbs for Shady Places include Mint, Parsley and Tarragon.
When deciding on a place for your garden, consider where you use the herbs or spices most. Usually this is near your kitchen.
By having your spice garden close to where you use it most, you will always remember to add more spice to your cooking.
Remember that you can have mixed results without proper attention and sun exposure. Take good care of your garden.
