Growing Conditions.

Post by divingbrit » Fri Dec 30, 2016 9:45 am

The Mediterranean herbs, thyme, sage, rosemary and oregano/marjoram all need good drainage and plenty of sun. They don't need rich soil and will have a better flavour if grown 'lean and mean'.

Mint and lovage are happier with a richer soil , more moisture (but not waterlogged!) and will grow in some shade, as will chives and parsley, though they like sun too.

Basil needs good, well-drained soil in the warmest spot you have, with lots of sun!

Suggest was we have three baths, one with poor soil, one with rich and one just for many variety's of mint.
