Growing Healthy Herbs

Growing healthy herbs
To grow herbs successfully , in the garden and in containers , there are three points to attend to:
1. A Sunny position,
2. Well drained, composted soil,
3. Organic fertiliser.
The aim of giving the correct growing conditions is to produce a plant that is:
• More resistant to fungal diseases like rust, black spot and mildew,
o Plants resistant to diseases require less or no spraying to ensure a natural,organically grown product,
• High in essential oil and other constituents , to ensure:
o More flavour in culinary herbs,
o More fragrance in herbs used for aromatherapy and pot-pourri, and
o More of the active ingredients in herbs used for medicinal purposes.
