How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing
Yum! I need to plant an herb garden...
Well, you do live in sunny California!!! Get with it!
Indeed. Unfortunately there's no spare bed space in the current yard (and anyway, we're planning on moving to a bigger place as soon as we find one). There is, however, a nice little windowsill over the kitchen sink that gets afternoon sun. Perhaps a small planter box would do well there. I'm thinking basil, thyme, rosemary, and parsley.
Be careful with rosemary in a small container, if it ever dries out once it will die and never come back.Funny that, because outdoors rosemary is very hardy and thrives in drier than normal conditions.
Really? I had no idea that growing it in a small container rendered it less hardy. Do you know why that is? Is it all small containers, indoors or outdoors, or is it just small containers that are indoors and away from, say, morning dew?
I don't really know, I tried to grow it in a pot for years and it would always eventually die.One year, I actually read the tag that came on a Christmas rosemary bush, and it explained that it is really not a good choice for container growing, with the admonishment to never let it dry out if you do keep it in a pot. Go figure?
