Herb Planter Care

How To: Take care of your herb planter

The kitchen window staple.

Water

Thoroughly water when the top of the soil is dry to touch. Be careful not to over water by making sure the pot doesn't get too heavy. Drain any excess water that is in the tin planter. 

Light

Herbs do best with at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. They can be grown indoors and are great on window sills that still have access to sunlight. (and your cooking)

Fertilize

Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer such as our Flower and Veggie 10-15-19 fertilizer every 5 to 6 weeks. Of course if you are drinking tea or coffee and want to give your herbs a boost, the grounds are very beneficial and green way of fertilizing. (they don't need this often though)

Maintain

Snip off the leaves and/or stems to use in your favorite dishes. Doing so will also promote more growth. Don't be shy either. The more you harvest the more growth you will get from your herbs. It may seem like too much but as long as your taking care of the plant it will thrive.

Temperature

Can be placed outside once temperatures are above 10° - 15° celsius and all danger of frost has passed.
