Herb growing from seeds.
Most herbs are easy to grow, but you must select the proper location to grow them and growing them in pots, containers hanging baskets need only to be placed into a sunny location, and only a few, including angelica, woodruff and sweet cicely, are better grown in partial shade. The oils, which account for the herbsą flavor, are produced in the greatest quantity when plants receive six to eight hours of full sunlight each day. If you donąt have a good, sunny location, many herbs will tolerate light shade, but their growth and quality will not be as good.
Herbs will grow in any good garden soil. The soil should not be extremely acid or alkaline; a soil nearly neutral is best for most herbs. A pH reading between 6.5 and 7.0 produces the best herbs.
When selecting a site for an herb garden, you must consider drainage. None of the important herbs grow in wet soils, but a few, such as mint, angelica and lovage, thrive in fairly moist soils.
