I planted the Herb gardens this weekend, except for Basil, which from past experience shouldn’t go in until the end of May or beginning of June.
I worked a couple of bags of manure and mushroom compost and some lime pellets into the soil, since the b eds by the deck have been in use for a number of years.
By the deck I planted:
- Thai Basil
- Summer Savory
- Curly Parsley
- Chocolate Mint
The Chives and Garlic Chives survived quite well, but my big Sage plant and the Oregano in the top planter didn’t survive, so I won’t plant either of those in this garden again. I’ll plant those in the new herb garden by the fence where they will have a better chance of survival.
I also planted two Cherry Tomato plants and two Grape Tomato plants in the pots by the deck.
In the herb garden by the fence, the Tarragon survived as well as a couple Sage plants. The two lovage plants that I planted from seed last year that took forever to germinate, are coming up strong and a few Dill plants are popping out.
I planted in that garden:
- 6 Oregano plants
- 6 Thyme plants
- 2 Sage plants
- 8 Swiss chard plants
