Ok, here we go-- I am an idiot with plants. And that's putting it nicely! It kind of "hurts" my feelings, b/c I like to think I'm a nurturing soul. And I do nurture my plants. To death.
I have OVER watered since I can remember trying to grow plants as a child (my mom has a green thumb and encouraged my bro and I to try and grow different things). I think it speaks to my co-dependent soul. :) If you want to "dig" that deep! LOL!
I am attempting an herb garden this year. I'm not successful bringing things to life from seed, so I got some plants that have already started growing. In the large trough we have sweet basil, thyme, italian parsley and chive. The two smaller pots are cherry tomatos and mint.
Now, I do know enough to know that mint NEEDS it's own container. Even if you plant everything else in the ground, mint should always be in a container (the size is up to you)-- b/c it grows like a frickin' weed. You blink and it will take over your whole yard! And luckily, it's about the only thing I can't kill.
I'm basically posting this in the hopes that someone out there might have some encouragement and possibly some tips for me-- help is appreciated! :)
