Having an herbal garden, whether indoors or out, provides you with culinary spices and a host of foliage and flora. Planting herbs in flower pots takes advantage of small gardening spaces and makes for a convenient way of maintaining how much grows in each pot. Growing herbs in flower pots is a simple process.
Choose a variety of herb seeds, such as peppermint, thyme, lavender, rosemary and sage. Pick up a book about herbs to further educate yourself on the many several varieties available to you.
Place a peat moss pod for each seed you are planting on paper plate. A paper plate can hold up to six pods.
Place a seed into the burrowed out spot in the center of each peat moss pod.
Add approximately 2 cups of water evenly over each pod. The pods instantly begin to swell and absorb the water until they are about four times their original size.
Water the pods once a week with 2 cups of water until the seeds germinate. Allow the plants to reach about 2 inches in height.
Fill a flower pot three-fourths full of potting soil for each plant.
Insert an entire peat moss pod and plant into the center of a soil-filled flower pot.
Cover the pod with more soil, allowing only the plant part to be visible.
Repeat this step with as many of the seeds as you have planted.
