Growing A Medicinal Herb Garden
-------------------- Sponsored Links --------------------


I personally am really into natural cures and herbal remedies. This year we are considering starting a medicinal herb garden, it is something that we have been thinking of doing for a while now.

Herbs are great for treating many different ailments such as the common cold, headaches, burns, inflammation, skin rashes, upset stomachs etc.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • herb seeds or seedlings
  • ladder or wagon wheel (optional)
  • pots or containers(optional)
  • potting mix (optional)
  • compost
  • aged manure

It is completely up to you whether to start with seeds or seedlings. The only major difference is that seeds will take up to 21 days to start germinating.

Some herbs such as basil, ginger, St John’s Wort and thyme can be grown in containers or as companions to your vegetables. Others like chamomile, feverfew, garlic and echinacea do well in raised beds, old ladders or wagon wheels.

Then there are some that get really big in size like yarrow and valerian, they need a lot more space. A small corner in your garden would be perfect for them.
