How to Create a Mini Herb Garden for Your Small Outdoor Space
Living in a small space doesn't mean you have to give up on the joys of gardening. With a little creativity and the right tools, you can create a flourishing mini outdoor herb garden right on your balcony or patio.
Join me as I take you step by step through the process of creating this easy mini herb garden, including the tools I used, and caring tips to help you enjoy your fresh herbs for longer, all with the help of the Fiskars Food gardening tool set and Miracle-Gro potting mix, both conveniently available at Walmart.
Step 1: Choosing the Right Tools
The first step to creating a thriving herb garden is selecting the right tools. The Fiskars Food gardening tool set from Walmart proved to be an excellent choice. This set includes three essential tools for planting and tending to herbs:
1. Pruner: The pruner was invaluable for trimming my herbs, ensuring they grew strong and healthy.
2. Trowel: The trowel made repotting a breeze, allowing me to transfer my store-bought herbs into larger containers with ease.
3. Cultivator: The cultivator helped me break up soil and keep it loose, promoting healthy root growth for my herbs.
Step 2: How to Plant Herbs
I opted for store-bought herbs, so repotting was the key to helping them thrive in my mini herb garden. Using the trowel, I gently removed each herb from its nursery pot and placed it into a larger container. The Miracle-Gro potting mix provided the perfect blend of nutrients and moisture retention, ensuring my herbs had a strong foundation to grow and flourish.
Step 3: Water and Enjoy Your Fresh Herbs
Now that everything is planted, it's time to sit back and enjoy the beauty and aroma of your mini herb garden. Water your herbs regularly, allowing the soil to stay moist but not waterlogged. With a sunny spot on your balcony or patio, your herbs will thrive, giving you a continuous supply of fresh flavors for your culinary creations.
Step 4: Harvesting Your Fresh Herbs
When your herbs are ready for harvest, reach for the trusty Fiskars Pruner and Harvest Basket from Walmart. The pruner allows you to cut back what you need with precision, promoting healthy growth. Gather your fresh herbs in the harvest basket, savoring the joy of picking your homegrown ingredients for delicious dishes.
With these four steps, creating a flourishing outdoor herb garden in a small space is not only doable but also incredibly gratifying. My small patio now boasts a lush green haven of herbs. Watering and savoring my fresh herbs have become peaceful daily rituals, and harvesting my own herbs not only helps save me money but also gives me peace of mind about what I am putting into my body. So, whether you're a seasoned gardener or a newbie, head to Walmart, grab your Fiskars tools and Miracle-Gro potting mix, and set off on your own herb garden adventure! Happy gardening!
