Herb Garden Spring

My little herb garden (with a free download)

As I am sure all you southern hemisperians (is that a thing?) will know, Spring has sprung. Here are a few reasons why I am so excited for Spring this year.

Bunnings 2

  1. I missed Spring entirely last year due to being in Europe. Poor me, right?
  2. I can’t wait to leave the house wearing just a t-shirt
  3. I am going to try something new and exciting. I am going to grow herbs! 

I have made it my mission to plan, grow and maintain a healthy little herb garden on the balcony of my apartment. 


I do live in an apartment building with limited space and sunlight so I have spent the past week researching herbs, growing conditions and the tips and tricks to make them thrive. 

Why a herb garden? Because homemade pesto. Enough said. 

Since starting a food blog I have fallen head over heels for cooking with fresh herbs. Seeing as most of my recipes have a budget in mind. I cannot afford $3-4 per bunch every time I want to use fresh rosemary, basil, dill or parsley.

Solution: Grow them!

The best thing about this is you can grow them too, regardless of what type of house you live in.  I have written a pamphlet for you guys with some tips, information and planning tools to help you grow your own herbs.

This is the first PDF out of a 4 week series, each week with step by step instructions on how to plan, grow and maintain your own herb garden. 

My aim is to help you have a thriving, luscious herb garden by then end of September to enjoy all Spring/Summer.

Lovingly crafted all for you to take the hard work out of growing herbs. The download is available here:

    Have you got a PDF planned for those that cannot grow herbs because their dog eats them? Week 5?

    We grow our own herbs and it is so good to be able to go grab a handful of what you need. In summer we had so much basil it was ridiculous…so we made it up into pesto and froze it for use throughout the rest of the year.

    Haha, no need to be embarrassed! It’s an odd concept that half of the world goes the opposite way. Ahh, all those fun little things I have to learn. I am really excited to see how each plants grows (then eat them!)

    Haha, I’m almost embarrassed how long I was confused about you saying it was spring. I’ve had GREAT success with herb gardens here in California, though some plants are so much easier than others. Rosemary grows like a weed, but I just cannot keep my cilantro from flowering!

    I think it will be a fun Spring activity. Plus I am obsessed with basil.

    I love this! I’m about to move house but am so keen to set up a herb garden in the new place.
