    Default Any herbalists here?

    I'm wanting to plant a small herb garden that I can maintain on my apartment deck in the spring. Is anyone here an herbalist that has some helpful tips? What are the easiest herbs to grow / what is best to start with?

    You can go to Home Depot or Lowes and they have starter herb gardens, to grow in your home or in a window box. I grow Basil, Parsley, Chives, Rosemary, Mint, whatever I use in cooking is what I grow. I did not have good luck with lavender though.

    I got some good answers from the EM forum I'm gonna probably start with. Any other suggestions or tricks to the trade would be welcome though!

    ZeldaFitz, you can buy herbs all ready grown at Home Depot and all you have to do is water them.

    I really don't see why almost everyone is against our practices.

    I think things are changing it seems at least here in Australia and of course Scandinavia is big, on alternatives and holistic approaches...hopefully it will be everywhere soon..

    I'm not a certified herbalist, but I grow herbs, and wildharvest alot of local herbs that are medicinally beneficial. How much space do you have? Are you looking for more indoor herbs or potted herbs or stuff you can put in the ground?
