29 Apr How to Grow Your Own Herb Garden
Gardening is a hobby which can be incredibly rewarding and growing your own herb garden is not only rewarding, but also cost effective, good for the environment and very handy when it comes to cooking.
Whether you have space for an entire vegetable patch, or room for a container or two, a herb garden is a great way to utilise any space. Although gardening pro’s are likely to grow their own herbs, they are ideal for gardening beginners too, due to how easy they are to grow, requiring very little maintenance.
