Growing flowers and herbs brought from a different climate can sometimes be quite a challenge. But there are certain good tips you can apply in order to be successful in your endeavor. There are various methods and strategies for growing plants in different climates, and each one of them has its own peculiarities, advantages and disadvantages.
The mere thought of growing your own food can be intimidating. Nevertheless, herbs and flowers are no different from other plants, and with a little bit of good will, experience and knowledge you can get the best results you could possibly hope for, and by using an organic potting soil for superb growth.
The good news about herbs and flowers is the fact that, if they are perennial, they are much more resistant than the typical vegetable plants. And most herbs can survive under full or partial sun, but tend to be less resistant when there is too much shade. Some herbs, such as rosemary, can be found in different growing options, from ground cover to topiaries. Another idea would be to grow flowers and herbs in pots, in case they tend to be too invasive, like mint, for instance.
When choosing your herbs, you should start with those which are easiest to grow, such as parsley or oregano, and then choose the more sensitive ones.
