Avoiding The Classic Fail When Growing Herbs

Ensure adequate drainage for your herbs by providing draining holes in containers or pots. If growing herbs outdoors, maintain proper soil moisture by adding organic material. Once the seeds have sprouted, water the soil regularly. Allow the soil to dry out just a bit in between consecutive waterings. At this stage, the seeds need a little sprinkle of water two to three times a week!

Watch out for rot and avoid overwatering the seeds at this stage because it can cause damping-off and other fungal diseases. Keep the sprouted seeds in direct sunlight or on a windowsill that receives sunlight for a few hours during the day. Monitor the sprouted seeds and watch out for unwanted pests and insects. Use neem oil to get rid of unwanted pests and insects such as aphids and whiteflies.
