Planting Herbs with Miracle-Gro®

This post brought to you by Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's been a while that I wanted to start potting some herbs. A frriend of mine already gave to me some of their plants as they are moving. But since fall is approaching then I am not sure how far we can go with our cold weather here, I plan of transferring some of the veggies and herbs in a pot. Fall gardening would really let you opt for potting some of your plants and vegetables especially those that needs to be indoor during extreme cold weather.

I learned that to Find beauty in the Fall with your aromatic herbs garden can be happened using theMiracle-Gro® Potting Mix. This is ideal for potted or container plants and has rich, organic materials that helps improve drainage and air flow for moisture control. It feeds up to 6 months with Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food.  You can plant the herbs indoor and I saw on pinterest this vertical way of planting the herbs and you can have it stand in a shaded part of your house that faces south so it can come in contact direct to the sunlight.

I learned some good tips for growing herbs on the Miracle Gro site. "Since air and soil temperature can affect plant growth rates, keep your seedlings warm with a seedling heat mat, available at your garden center". And also, "If you're growing from seed, look for newer varieties that are dense and compact, since standard ones may not be satisfactory in the house. Popular herbs include basil, thyme, oregano, and rosemary. Ask at your garden center for recommendations"

Check also the Miracle-Gro Facebook page for more information about the products you can use for your garden as well as different ideas and tips in planting this fall season.

I do not have a herb plant but I do used the Miracle Gro when we plant our flowers. They grow healthy and blooming :-)

Mel Cole said...

I love your idea of planting herbs on that kind of side rack. very portable, especially when fall, the temperature will fluctuate and herbs will be easily taken indoors with those.

MommyLES said...

Poor me, I don't have a green thumb that's why I can't grow even a little garden :( Maybe this would help.

When I was young, I used to buy stuffs like that. Unfortunately, it didn't work. Maybe, there's something wrong with the way that I used it. I will try doing this again. It's one of my goals to put up a small garden in our backyard.

Genny said...

I do not have the green thumb either but hubby always the one that plant. He is a farmer hehehe...
