When buying seeds, find plants that are perfectly adapted to the conditions of open ground. Advantages of the seedlings – a well-developed root system, the accelerated development of the vegetative mass and reduced the period until harvest.
Where Should You Place Your Garden? Everything depends on space, wishes, conditions. For owners of the land it is important to determine the place of the garden layout. The approach to the garden should be free, as a “reserve” of herbs should be available at any time. Classic kitchen garden can be considered as a mini-garden on the windowsill, and maxi beds in industrial areas.
Mini-garden on the windowsill with proper care will ensure an uninterrupted supply of spices, regardless of the season. One should use phyto-lamps in case the plant needs extra light. Regular watering, feeding and nourishing daily illumination are three rules that guarantee the availability of fresh greens in the kitchen. On the windowsill, you can safely grow green onions, dill, parsley, basil, spinach, and mint.
The herbs can be kept on the balcony. They are planted in containers, as well as common room flowers. Since different types of plants need individual care, one cannot plant them in the same container.
Conclusion: Kitchen garden is very useful especially for those families who like to have fresh herbs, special aroma adding to everyday food which make it more delicious.
