If you want to do your part to make the environment a better place to live in while also bettering your diet you might want to consider growing a private garden. Starting a garden to grow your own fruits, vegetables and herbs is simple, good for the environment, cost effective and, as an added bonus, makes your home or backyard smell fantastic to boot!

Really, how can you say no to any of those benefits we just mentioned when it comes to growing herbs, vegetables and fruits in your piece of Kitchener real estate property? Wouldn't it be awesome if say one day you were making a salad for dinner and you wanted to top it off with some herbs and all you had to do was walk into your backyard and pick them yourself?

Just think how sweet the life a herb gardener is when not only do they not have to leave their home to drive to the nearest supermarket to purchase herbs such as rosemary or thyme but they also get to walk through a garden they helped grow that smells absolutely delightful! You can have that life if you grow a herb garden in your home.

Cilantro, thyme, chive, mint, rosemary, basil, sage, dill, parsley, lavender, oregano, tarragon, etc.; you name the herb you want to grow and you can grow it. Nobody's going to stop you from having a herb garden, so if you want to start growing herbs then you just go right on ahead and start.

We mentioned that growing a garden is simple and when it comes to specifically growing a herb garden it is actually quite ridiculously simple! The thing about herb gardens is that you don't need a huge plot in order to start growing herbs. All you need is soil, pots, a sunny location and a lot of TLC! Balconies, staircases, patios, decks, and windowsills are all perfect locations for a herb garden, as long as they are in a good spot for the sun to shine down on them.

First thing you do is pick out your pot or container, make sure it has holes in it, and fill it up with soil. Then it's time to make room for the herbs and you do that by creating a hole deep enough in the soil so that the root ball will fit. When the hole is ready water the plant and start to squeeze it out and then place it in the hole and remove it from its original pot. Plant all your herbs and fill the soil around it. Water your herbs regularly and monitor them to ensure they are getting the proper sunlight wherever you planted them.

That's all you have to do in order to start your own herb garden. Easy enough, right?
