Being prepared for zombies on my lawn: Priceless.

Well, here’s yet again another attempt at me starting an herb garden. Difference this time is that I actually have land to plant on. Yay, home ownership! I’ve got parsley, catnip, oregano, thyme, tarragon, and basil. Any tips from you green thumbs out there? ‘Cause generally anything I plant dies pretty horribly. Black thumbs run in my family. I know I need to keep them watered, but not too watered or I’ll get root rot. When should I water them? Every other day? Every second day? I have them at a west-facing window so they’ll get some sunlight filtered through the pine tree back there every day.

Any useful advice appreciated!

    for in the house, I’d say just water them a little every couple of days. Wait til they look dry on top to water again. For outside, nothing beats a watering system (i.e. soaker hoses or drip systems) with an automatic timer. It’s the only way I have been successful with vegetable gardening! LOL

    Like Laura said, keep only slightly damp, water a bit when the top gets slightly dry, do not let it set in excess drain off. once sprouted make sure that the western sun doesn’t get too hut
