Creating Your Garden of Herbs

Posted by

Early in the development stages of My Garden Post a business friend asked me, “What’s the purpose of your new product?” He went on to explain that gardeners will gauge the value of the product by the problems it solves. Last week I wrote in detail of the many unique features and applications of My Garden Post. In today’s post, I’ve narrowed my focus to herb gardening and the purpose of growing herbs on My Garden Post.

Growing herbs in containers is a centuries old practice for home gardeners. My Garden Post introduces a vertical gardening technique that allows you to grow 10 of your favorite herbs on just 4 square feet of balcony, deck or patio space. That’s just one reason to garden on MGP. The bullets below list the reasons why your next herb garden will grow best on My Garden Post. Visit our website for other suggested plantings of vegetables, annual flowers and strawberries. (www.mygardenpost.com)

  • Cooking enthusiasts enjoy having fresh herbs growing conveniently close to the kitchen. Until we introduced My Garden Post, balconies and decks were cluttered with an odd assortment of containers that left little living space.
  • Special trips from the kitchen to the garden for a few fresh sprigs of basil or thyme are a thing of the past. With MGP your fresh herbs are growing just a few steps from the kitchen.
  • The need for fresh herbs is year around and My Garden Post easily rolls inside on its 5 sturdy casters. MGP is as handsome as it is practical and fits in well with most home decors. All you need is a large sunny window.
  • Maintaining and harvesting herbs is easier with a vertical growing system, there’s no bending, stretching or dirty knees.
  • The My Garden Post vertical gardening system provides cultural advantages over in-ground gardens and typical container gardens.
  • Plants are better ventilated and healthier
  • Plants are less exposed to soil born insects and diseases
  • There’s no weeding
  • The fully automated drip irrigation system waters your plants so you don’t have to

    I’m often asked, “Which herbs should I grow?” I’m quick to suggest that you grow the herbs you’ll use and I don’t mean just for cooking. There books full of ideas on medicinal uses of herbs, tea recipes and craft projects. You’ll have no trouble coming up with a list of ten herbs to share the 5 planters. Here’s a short list of the most common herbs MGP growers have planted the past two summers.

  • Basil
  • Mint
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Thyme
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley
  • Chives
  • Dill
  • Sage
  • Tarragon

  • I’ll close this post with one more reason you’ll want to share your balcony, deck or patio with a My Garden Post herb garden. Imagine yourself reclined in your comfortable chaise longue. The light summer breeze carries the fragrance of your herb garden past you, while you sip from your tall glass of iced herb tea.
