There are many ways to deal with stress from the world outside. Some people listen to music while others workout to relieve stress. A real excellent way is to grow a garden.
Building a garden is not as simple as putting seeds into the ground and watering them. A garden needs love and care. A lot of thought needs to be invested into building a garden. A fresh herb garden is especially tricky but once you learn how, it can be very rewarding and satisfying.
The first thing a person would need to decide is where they would want to make their fresh herb garden. Do you want an indoor herb garden or an outside herb garden? Another thing to keep in mind is what kind of fresh herbs do you want in your garden?
We will focus on an indoor herb garden. When bringing and growing fresh herbs indoors, be sure there will be enough adequate sunlight. The garden will need preferably natural sunlight but lamps can also be used. Growing your garden by a window is a good place to start. About eight hours of sunlight would be sufficient for for most herb gardens.
There are signs to look for if the garden is not receiving enough light. Check for fading leaves or long stems and leaves. So be sure to check for those signs.
A couple common problems with growing a fresh indoor herb garden is temperature and humidity. Being in an indoor and controlled environment, all herb gardens will need a little extra care. Misting the plants is necessary.
It is also a good idea to add a tray of water under the pot. The water will turn into humidity from there but be sure to check the tray often as the water is quickly used up. With the little extra help given, you should be able to start and maintain a fresh indoor herb garden.
Just remember when growing the garden indoors, the plants will need a little more care than they would outdoors. Be sure the plants get enough light, preferably natural sunlight. Also make sure the plants have a sufficient amount of water. With that said, get out there and start growing!
