Buying herb plants for your home herb garden appears to be a little more difficult than I first thought. While visiting the local nursery it came to our attention that people did not know how to pick plants. This may sound weird, but there is a skill to picking plants that will do best when you transplant them into your garden.
My sister and I made this video to help you in choosing the best plants. Although this video is general it applies to buying herb plants.
My mother always planted new plants late in the day. That way they have a chance to relax over night. Be sure to keep your new plants moist for the week or so.
P.S. Herbs are perfect for container gardening. So if you are lacking space, purchase a variety of containers and give herbs a try.
P.S.S. Remember that your terracotta pots will need extra watering, especially in the heat of the summer.
