Soap making, spa, skin care, massage, aromatherapy and cosmeceutical ingredient supplier - From Nature With Love The 10 Best & Easiest to Grow Herbs The Gardenist So long as there is no snow on the ground, you can harvest herbs in your garden. There is nothing more satisfying and simple than snipping off just what you need and enjoying the garden fresh flavor without having to fork out a few bucks per bunch at the market. Herbs are among the easiest plants to grow. Here is my list of my Top ten 'Can't Live Without' garden herbs. 1) Rosemary Use it fresh or dried, the flavor is fantastic either way. Favorite uses: Holiday Gifts (the piney smell is perfect for the season) and chopped and sprinkled atop store bought pizza dough, baked and drizzled with olive oil and Parmesan cheese. 2) Thyme I find I use this for two main types of cooking; wintery stews and summery meat grilling marinades. Favorite Uses: Ina Garten's recipe for beef bourguignon is my favorite, but when I make it, I substitute lemon thyme and I triple the amount the recipe calls for. 3) Sage At nearly 5 years old, my sage plant is quite expansive (about 3 feet in diameter) and woody.

Tomatoes on the Move... Seizing on the opportunity to snap up a couple of grow bags retailing in Somerfield for £1.29, I spent the afternoon tending to my multitude of gargantuan tomato plants. I'm experimenting yet again and in this instance, am putting some tomato plants into grow bags outside on the balcony, with some more remaining inside on the windowsill. I'm still unsure as to how I'm going to construct a 'bed' for the indoors grow bag (to avoid mess inside the flat), so whilst I deliberated over that produce problem, I set to, transplanting three tomato plants into the grow bag outside. The first step I took, was to take 3 flower pots and cut the bottom out of them: The intention was to sit these pots on top of holes in the grow bag. Once I had cut the holes into the flower pots, I wedged these into the openings I'd created on the grow bag: As you can see, I've inserted some plant sticks and tied the plants to them for added support.

Créer un potager sur son balcon Il est tout à fait possible d'aménager un petit potager sur votre balcon. Bien sûr, impossible de nourrir toute une famille avec une culture de ce type, mais vous pourrez tout de même agrémenter votre cuisine du quotidien avec quelques produits frais et bien choisis (des tomates par exemple, sans oublier les herbes aromatiques). La meilleure période pour la plantation ? Du printemps jusqu'à la fin de l'été, pour éviter que vos plantes ne gèlent. - Les plantes aromatiques: pourquoi ne pas craquer pour le thym, le basilic, le persil ou encore la verveine citronnée ou de la menthe ? Rien de tel pour apporter un peu de saveur et de couleur à tous vos plats ! - Si vous avez suffisamment de place, pensez-aussi aux tomates et aux tomates cerises qui poussent facilement. Pour récolter régulièrement de beaux légumes, voici également quelques astuces indispensables : - En fonction des légumes et plantes aromatiques que vous y faites pousser, un minimum de lumière est également indispensable.

Faire pousser ses légumes bio sans jardin En ville, les logements ressemblent à des cages à lapins. Plusieurs étages d’appartements plus ou moins vieux, parfois avec un minuscule balcon. Certains ont la chance d’avoir une toute petite terrasse, ou un très petit bout de jardin. En cas de problème très grave (mouvements sociaux avec grèves interminables, guerre civile, IEM,…) il saute aux yeux que l’on n’a pas du tout la place pour faire pousser de la nourriture. Ceux qui vivent dans les villes, sans avoir beaucoup d’argent vont souffrir plus que les autres. Quand on a assez de terre pour faire pousser soi-même, les fruits et légumes coûtent entre 50 et 700 fois moins chers, selon les espèces. Normalement sur un balcon standard, il n’y a la place que pour faire pousser quelques plantes. 35 centimètres entre chaque salade, ça permet de faire pousser 15 salades par balcon… Autant dire, rien. Normalement… … Je me suis dit qu’il y avait peut être un moyen pour faire pousser quand même. Ta daaaaa !!!! Ca marche ! Bon.
