When creating your own herb garden, it’s important to avoid mistakes that could potentially harm the growth and well-being of your plants. So if you’re about to start your herb garden then here are a three common mistakes that you should avoid.
- Gardening in an area that’s too hot or too cold – Most herbal plants won’t grow if the temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius or above 65 to 70 degrees Celsius. So don’t put your herbs in these kinds of environments.
- Planting in the wrong types of soil – Different types of herbs require different types of soil. For example, if you want to plant lilacs and hellebores then you will need alkaline soil. Likewise, if you want to plant bilberry and red clover then you will need acidic soil. And if you want to plant switchgrass and irises then you will need clay soil.
- Improper watering – Herb plants are not houseplants. They require moderate and regular watering, and if you’re going to put them in a pot then it will need adequate drainage to keep the plant from drowning.
