Indoor Edible Plants
Story Title: Indoor Edible Plants
Date: 27th March 2010
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane
Herbs are all about flavour and whilst having a herb and spice garden like this is all good and fine for some, not all of us have room to grow them in the garden; one of the hottest trends around is growing your own flavour pots, a source of particular flavours to suit your favourite meals.
- Lemon grass, coriander and chives are perfect for bringing indoors and harvesting fresh straight into the dish.
- If you love the good old roast why not plant some lemon thyme, traditional thyme and rosemary into a bowl? These types of plants tend to need a larger pot size as they spread and grow bigger.
- There's no limit to the varieties you can grow and it's always a good idea to have three or four bowls going if you use a lot of fresh herbs in meals. You can then rotate them around each week to allow them to grow more foliage.
- Plant them and let them settle in for a week or 2 then apply an organic plant food using liquid composts and seaweed extracts over the foliage every 2 weeks for best results.
- The planters will need replacing every 9 to 12 months. Simply throw out the old soil and plants and pop in new fresh plants.
