Growing herbs

Posted by Tanya Wood on

Looking beyond flowers and plants, of course you can also create a herb garden using your Bay and Box window box.

Chives, mint, parsley, sage and lots of others work really well either as a complete window box or mixed in with other plants. In particular, sage, with its soft leaves is excellent planted in with flowering plants and comes in a variety of colours.

To plant your herbs, make sure the box you are using has drainage holes. Bay and Box window boxes come with two drainage holes as standard. 

Use a well-drained compost and keep it moist, watering at regular intervals but not allowing the compost to become too soggy. Add in a balanced fertilizer to promote leafy rather then flowering growth. Choose a sunny spot to allow your herbs to get plenty of sunlight and sit back and enjoy the lovely smell and taste from your herbs all throughout the summer!
Please do send and share your pictures on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages using #bayandbox.
Happy herb planting! x
