3 Tips to Starting Your Own Herb Garden

Herbs are super easy to grow and require minimal care!

Over the past few months, many have become plant lovers or simply plantitos and plantitas. People have started gardening and planting in their own backyards and taking care of small plants inside their homes as a form of relaxation while also giving a sense of productivity amid the quarantine period.

On the other hand, there are also some who have been exploring in the kitchen, whipping up dishes and desserts for their and their loved ones’ personal consumption. And to make an earning from their newfound interest, most of these people have turned their hobbies into an online business.

Tip #3: Choose the appropriate soil and fertilizer.
