Create a chef’s herb garden in 3 hours or less
no master gardening necessary for success
Starting a Chef’s Herb Garden has benefits that positively impact your life and the environment. Additionally, by growing your fresh and organic produce, you save money on food, reduce your carbon footprint, and enjoy a hobby promoting well-being.
The key to a successful chef’s herb garden is selecting the right plants for your climate and growing conditions. Although popular herbs like Basil, Thyme, Chives, Sage, Rosemary, Parsley, and Cilantro can thrive in your garden, providing they receive the right amount of sun and space. Get familiar with the herbs you want to plant so the placement plan is simple and efficient.
Know What You Want To Achieve by Asking Yourself These Questions:
- What herbs do I use the most?
- What vegetable do I want to grow in my chef’s patio garden?
- What herbs complement each other?
- What can be grown together?
While starting a chef herb garden, avoid common mistakes like overwatering or underwatering your plants. Choosing the wrong plants, overcrowding, and insufficient sunlight are critical factors for an unsuccessful gardening experience. By carefully following planting instructions and monitoring your plants’ health, you’ll create a thriving garden that produces delicious and nutritious produce as a result of your care.
Starting a chef herb garden is a beautiful way to enhance a bon lifestyle and positively impact the environment. With careful planning and dedication, you can create a beautiful and bountiful garden that provides fresh and healthy produce for your culinary adventures.
Time To Create:
I spent just three hours creating my Chef’s Herb Garden.
My selection of herbs is simple. I started with Purple and Sweet Basil, Thyme, and Sage in one sizeable round container. I left enough room for herbs to grow and expand.
Continuing with single containers of the following:
4. Parsley, flat and curly
Single containers give herbs room for expansion and create a personal oasis for all my cooking adventures. Even this relatively small selection of plants will produce enough for simple everyday cooking and some for freezing to use later. My vegetable container choice is cherry tomatoes. They multiply in a container and grow well with low maintenance. I can almost taste the fresh parsley, basil, and tomatoes with a splash of EVOO and Traditional Balsamic. Magnifique!
Tip: Don’t be afraid to sprinkle in FRENCH PANTRY Herb Blends with your fresh herbs; this action enhances the flavors for a perfect marriage of ingredients.
Are You Worried About Caring for Your Plants?
Set your worries aside and download one of the plant apps from your app store. I found these two apps very helpful, PlantApp and PlantinApp. Learn more here about PlantApp here: Plant App – Plant Identifier on the App Store (apple.com)
OR The Plantinapp here: PlantIn Download (popsilla.com). You’ll only need one or the other, so I suggest downloading a free trial, trying them, and deciding which is best for you.
Use Time-Saving Techniques:
What I love most about this chef herb garden is that every night I incorporate many fresh herbs into my cooking prep, and the taste of the season is divine!
I highly recommend the bon COOK Eco-Chop for time-saving preparation; The time to chop herbs in the Eco-Chop is minimal compared to chopping with a knife.
Whether you plant an entire garden or a chef’s herb garden filled with your personal favorites, your taste buds will thank you forever!
