Planting Herbs on a Low Budget
I wanted to have a nice herb garden, but I didn’t want to pay a lot of money. I just wanted to get the basic herbs that I use a lot in cooking. I headed to a small local nursery and bought oregano, cilantro, banana peppers, rosemary, chives and lavender. After I got the herbs I went to the local Dollar Tree to see if there was anything I could use.
Once I made this awesome find, I ran over to the local hardware store and lucked out with a bag of $5.99 potting soil. I then planted my herbs and packed them tight in the dirt. Most herbs need full sun so make sure your little plants get plenty of light!
I planted these a little close together, but they should be okay for awhile. When they start getting a little bigger I will re-plant some of them into their own pots. If you have any questions about what your plants need, make sure to read the little info tab that comes with them.
Total cost of this project: $22.00 ($12.00 if you already have your herbs)
