So since my last post that I used Miracle-Gro my herbs died. Just keepin it real people. And I have to say it was no fault to Miracle-Gro's products, it was because my husband refused to keep the kitchen blinds open so my poor herbs had zero sunlight and slowly withered away. So. When I was contacted by Miracle-Gro to check out these Gardenieres videos I was more than willing. I LOVE having fresh herbs around the house and am dying to have them around again. So, this time I have decided I will create a potted herb garden and leave it outside where I know it will get plenty of sunshine. I think I will start out with rosemary, oregano, basil & cilantro. We'll see how it work out...I'm a little nervous. I have watched quite a few of the Gardenieres videos though and they teach you step by step how to accomplish what you're looking for. So, I feel like I can totally do this! I am heading out to Home Depot this weekend while my oldest is at preschool (shopping with 3 babies is no bueno!) to check out the herbs/pots I'm going to use. I think I'll use the Miracle-Gro soil because then I don't have to buy both soil and fertilizer. Plus we already have the LiquaFeed so once it's time to start fertilizing again we can just use that. If you want to stay up to date with what Miracle-Gro is up to go and like the Miracle-Gro Facebook page!
Here is a helpful video I found that I think I will be referring to often while planting my herb garden. Let's all keep our fingers crossed I can keep my poor plants alive this time :)
