Hi all my first time growing herbs this year produced mixed results the herbs that I decided to grow was the following………

Herbs: Basil, Oregano, Dill, Coriander, parsley Lemon Thyme, Chives Rosemary, Salad leaves, Rocket

The was grown from seed in a heated Propagator back in February. Most seeds germinated and then in to a well-established plant. The main problem with the seeds that did not germinate was due to the damp air contained within the propagator; Rosemary which I know is a slow herb to grow failed to show any signs of live after five weeks.

So now, in August the only herbs to survive were Basil, Oregano, Parsley, Lemon Thyme, Salad leaves, Dill, and Rocket..

As you can see from the picture Basil/ Oregano and Parsley are well established wow they have (nearly out grown the pot)

Here is just a smple of the best crops this year
