Herb Garden Maintenance

Herb garden maintenance is super easy! It’s not really any different than the maintenance of your vegetable garden.


Each herb has different requirements but most enjoy soil that is moist.


Weeds will also take over the water supply and cause the herbs to wilt.


Well-pruned herbs will continue to grow year-round and prevent them from going to seed.

Harvesting and Relocating

When the weather starts to cool down, most herbs will need to be moved indoors.


Compost or organic fertilizers are best. For herbs grown in containers, use slow-release and water-soluble fertilizers.


Add two to four inches of mulch around herbs to prevent the growth of weeds.
