Hi. I’m Amy Stewart. And in this section, we’re going to fill our pots with dirt and go ahead and plant our herbs.
So we’ll start with my small one here. And all we got to do is just go ahead and load the pots with our homemade potting mixture. Basically, what I’m going to do is I’m going to fill the pot up until I have about an inch left. And then once we get our plants in, I’ll decide if I need a little bit more dirt.
We’ll start off by planting our preschool sprout, and it looks like they used something similar to our peat pots. So what we’ll do is we’re just going to plant this whole thing in the dirt. And I like to make sure that—I go ahead and bury especially with a sprout, that I bury it almost up to the leaves but not cover the leaves with dirt. So it’s going to look basically like that once you get the sprout in the dirt. Next, we’ll go ahead and work on our complete Italian herb garden. We’re going to start with the basil. I’m actually going to put my basil in the middle of the pot and then I’ll put everything else around it.
Basil, even though it looks small gets huge especially if you have it in great light with plenty of moisture. So as you can see, I’m burying this as deeply as I can. I simply pulled the plant out of the plastic container, garden it like that. As long as you’re pretty careful with it, you can pretty much grab a plant without worrying about hurting it too much. So, we’re just going to use one for this pot.
The next thing that we’re going to do is use our oregano, and I’ve got a pair of scissors because these are great little pots because these are also peat pots. What you do is you just simply take the plastic wrapper off and you can plant the whole thing. So, we’re going to bury it in the dirt like so. I’m planting these basically at twelve o’clock, four o’clock and seven o’clock. Now remember, your rosemary is going to be the one that you may be able to pull in the winter time. So that’s also another candidate. You could use it to put in the middle except—for me, rosemary just never seem to get as big as basil and I wanted to get the basil plenty of room.
And then parsley, which we’ll also be growing as an annual. This pot seems to be a little stiff here. So these ones, you can recycle but you can get the other clay pots, they’re really better. Alright, you get the parsley a little bit deeper. I don’t worry too much about my root ball. Some people like to move the roots around. I kind of just let them be. I figured they’re having enough trauma with me working with them already. If you feel like you want to, you can leave your little sticks that come with them in so you know what everything is until you are an expert gardener and you already know.
So, now that we’ve gotten everything in, it may look like it’s not quite so full. However, as time goes on and everything grows, it will fill in and you’re going to have a gorgeous garden. And actually, I’m going to train my parsley to kind of come down the side a little bit, but that is what it’s going to look like. And that is how you get herbs into that.
