The Croft’ Urban Garden (T.C.U.G.) took it’s first steps last night as eight herbs were planted out in a couple of growbags and a few pots.
We have mint, greek basil, thyme, chives, rosemary, marjoram, sage and italian flat leaf parsley on the go. I’m still waiting on a few large collapsible containers to be delivered so the herbs had to go into the growbags (which were intended for the veg plants when they get here) which will have to do for now.
The herbs were simply planted out in their biodegradable pots and given a quick water to get them started. They all look a bit sad and bedraggled at the moment but I’m assured they will perk up after a week or so.
The hardier, woodier ones are outside but I’ve kept the basil and flat leaf parsley inside the balcony doors where they will get plenty sun safe from the Glasgow elements.
If you would like to have a go to then I ordered the herbs from Rocket Gardens by mailorder.
