Herb Garden Trio

Set Up

Before You Start

Before You Start

Find a good spot Make sure it’s possible for your herbs to receive 6+ hours per day of light.

Want to speed it up? Soak cilantro and parsley overnight before setting up to see sprouts in as little as one week.

3 Essential Elements Make sure you’re able to provide the below maintenance to ensure your herbs’ growth..

1. Watering

Plants love consistency! Water herbs regularly to keep soil moist.

iconWe recommend a watering routine to check the soil every 3-4 days. Set reminders to help you maintain a schedule.

 Unsure about when? Just give the soil a poke! It should be damp and spongy (not dry and dusty or wet and sludgy!)

2. Lighting

All plants need light, and herbs need more of it than most. These plants require full sun in order to grow

What is full sun? 6+ hrs/day of direct unobstructed sunlight.

Don’t have enough natural light? Consider purchasing a grow light

3. Temperature

Ideal temperature for your herbs is 65-70ºF.

A general rule of thumb

If you’re cold, your herbs are probably cold too. If you’re warm, they could be feeling warm too.

Gather Materials

Gather Materials

In addition to all of the materials included in your kit, you’ll need to grab:

  • Large bowl
  • Liquid measuring cup

This can get messy! Make sure the area you’re working in can get a little dirty. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty, grab a spoon too.

Mix soil with water

Mix soil with water

Place all discs in a bowl and pour 2 1/4 cups (or 3/4 cup per soil disc) of warm water over discs. Wait a few seconds. Then fluff up and break apart any dry parts.

Fill up the pots

Fill up the pots

Place the soil into the pots, a handful at a time, keeping the soil light and fluffy. Once full, press the top to even out surface.

Extra, extra! You can use a small amount of leftover soil to cover the seeds with soil in the next step.

Should I wash my hands? Next step involves touching some more dirt.

Plant the seeds

Plant the seeds

Scatter seeds across the surface of each pot. Cover seeds with a thin layer of soil.

Don’t forget to label your herbs! Your kit comes with pre-made labels to make it easier to track each of your herbs’ progress.

Speed it up! Cling saran wrap over top of your pots until you see sprouts to speed up germination.

Can I wash my hands yet? Yes, set up is all done – but this is just the beginning! Keep going to learn how to keep your herbs healthy.
