We are always operating our lives by timing. We have time of the year we will
do different activities for different purposes, such as going shopping in
November for upcoming holiday season. Mowing the grass for the first time in
spring and so forth. Well... herb gardening is no different and we need to
pay attention to the unique needs of each and every herb species in order to
achieve the highest level of success with growing our herb garden!
Timings in Terms of Planting Herb
Seeds Right Now
At the moment, we are in late summer and the heat
is still around. Our minds need to shift to thoughts of what we need to
prepare ahead for new herbs in terms of the upcoming fall. I consider it
pretty much one of the most important times of the year to plant most herbs
because so many are perennial or biannual and the late summer to fall is the
natural time of the year that the herb seeds will fall to the ground. I
always tell folks to try and imitate nature.
Timing in planting herb seeds is everything. From
species to species it is different, but I am going to show you two distinct
groups you need to think about at this time of the year..
Late Summer "Hardeners"
Late Fall "Overwinterers"
We are in the season that is a great time of the
year to start thinking about getting ready for the future in terms of growing
new herbs. You have time right now to get many herbs established properly
before the cooler autumn nights steps in to claim the seedlings you just have
I just will let
you know about this wonderful time of the year and growing herbs. Not only
are annuals doing well right now, but it is also time to start thinking about
germinating perennials now for the fall.
Late Summer "Hardeners"
- Herbs to plant right now, late
Many perennials like
just a few examples of the herbs that we offer them really need to be
started right now in late summer to get established for the fall. If you
can get these plants established before fall, they will overwinter and do
real great in the spring. Trust me... they would do great!
Late Fall "Overwinterers" -
Herbs to plant in the fall
Many herbs need to be planted in the fall in
order to provide the cold treatment that the herb seeds in the first spring
germination. You need to plan ahead and get ready to plant these seeds in
late October generally. It all depends on your local planting zone.
Some of the seeds that you plant in the fall
Orange Jewel Weed,Wild
Queens Anne's Lace,Wild
There are more seeds like this but this
should give you an idea.
We'll have more next week! This is the time of
the year to start ordering perennials for the jump start for next year!
