If creating a vege garden seems overwhelming, why not start with a herb tub?
Herb tubs also make great gift ideas and with Mother’s Day around the corner now might be the perfect time to put those green fingers to the test.
An old bucket, ceramic pot, wooden crate or small galvanized tub will work well for growing herbs. Make sure you drill drainage holes in the bottom of your tub, then layer it with a few small rocks, leaving space for water and air circulation. Mix sheep pellets or compost with potting mix to create a good organic fertiliser and fill your tub to three quarters before adding your herbs. Research what herbs grow well together and plant them according to their sunlight requirements.
