Herb choices

Category: Herb Garden | Posted: Sun Jan 01, 2006 9:10 pm

I couldn't decide if I should put this under choices or under herbs. I finally decided to use the herbs. I spent hours looking at the garden catalog. Since I have a gift certificate for a specific one I thought I would order herb seeds. That is why I want a greenhouse for my birthday. I finally made a list. It could change. I could order online, but I think I will mail order. In my mind I have a reason for it, but it may not make sense out of my mind. I guess that means I have to think about it some more. So, I will order some seeds and then go to the nursery closer to planting time and buy some plants. I have a huge rosemary bush that Brian says needs cut back so I may dry some. I am not sure why I should dry it when I can just go and cut the fresh but Brian says I should do it anyway. If I get a greenhouse, I may want to try to start a plant from cuttings. I have a book that shows step by step how to do it. I just have no place to do it right now. There is no room in this house for starting plants.
When I start plants now, I put the little pots on a table in a sunny spot. I cover it with clear plastic sheeting and at night I cover that with a tarp. It works, sort of. Not everything comes up and some things get too tall. So, I want a greenhouse that I can put a heater in at night and it will work better I think. Even the plastic kind. It's a heavy plastic called polypropylene.
