Answer by Kimberly C
There are two ways you can basically plant an herb garden. One is outside in the ground, and the other is outside or inside in a container garden. You can also start herbs from seeds. They are easy to grow and the key to growing them is purchasing a light weight potting soil. Add some vermiculite and some humus to the soil. Add hot water to the soil mixture, as this will help the roots become established. The seeds will turn into plugs.(small plants)
I have grown over thousands of herb seeds in a greenhouse as well as inside my home. I will link you to the spices and herb section of my website. There is a page on growing herbs from seeds, that may help you if you want to grow them from seeds.
