Hello, my name is Jose Zuniga. I'm representing We are heading to the store and you know what, what materials do we need. For starters today I decided that I'm going to use organic potting soil. You either have the choice of organic, it is going to be a little bit more expensive but that is your choice, or just get the simple regular potting soil. Of course, what else do we need? Well we need the herbs. You know the herbs comes in either small packages if you are going to start them by seeds, or you could by them by the 12 pack. The 12 pack is normally going to have between, I would say, between 6 and 8 herbs. You know so you could enjoy them. How you could also buy them individually. You know they are going to be bigger, fully grown, it just depends what do you want. What kind of size you want for your herbs. Now be very careful with herbs. To maintain them throughout the year you need plant food, so get a hold of some all purpose plant food. You know when you are doing your herb garden one of the rascal ones that we have, especially if you buy mint, mint would just take all over the entire area. If you are not going to have it in a enclosed container, be sure to purchase these dividers, and just put in between one plant and the other. So that way you are going to concentrate the mint in just that area, and trust me it would spread like there is no tomorrow. Also you could control it by having it in a pot. In the pot it is going to concentrate and it would stay there. Whether it is indoor or outdoor, these are the materials that we need to start our herb garden.
