Flowers24hours New Herb Planters Range

Now that spring is in the air (at last!) it is time to think of the sunny outside. Spring is the perfect season to concentrate on gardening and preparing to plant pretty flowers and scented herbs. When thinking of gardening we tend to split in our minds between plants which are useful and others that are ornamental.  However, with a little bit of knowledge and imagination we can enjoy both aspects of plants.

Herb WheelbarrowHerbs are the obvious choice.  They can supplement our diet yet also give us something delightful and interesting to look at.  We must not overlook the scents emanating from many herbs either!  There are some surprising options out there.  Some types of lavender can be grown for their appearance, their scent – and for their culinary contribution!  (Do be careful, not all varieties are suitable for eating).

There are just too many types and varieties of herbs to mention, but amongst the most common that can be grown outdoors in a cool climate include parsley, sage, basil, mint, oregano and thyme.

There are many containers suited for all types of herbs and seasonal plants, plastic containers are affordable and serviceable but they sadly can be a bit disappointing aesthetically.  Pottery containers are more pleasing and better in the hot weather but are heavier to manage and can be more expensive.  There is plenty of choice in metal containers nowadays.  They do not always come with drainage holes; it is advisable that you should drill some if you want to keep plants for a whole growing season.   Plants can be placed into the ground still in their pots, making sure that the base is opened up for the roots to go down, to ensure that some (especially mint) do not spread like weeds!

Herbs & SpicesHerbs can be placed beside paths and when their growth is stepped on their crushed leaves release a delightful scent.  Just be careful not to slip!  One can also extend “herbs” to include the likes of nasturtiums to trail down from above, giving colour with edible leaves and flowers!
