Here at Atlantica Hotel Halifax we’re just finishing up our plot application for the Common Roots Urban Farm, or as you might know it, the urban garden just across the way on the corner of Robie Street.
We’re super excited for executive chef Luis Clavel to hear back as to how many plots and which plants he’ll be able to use for food in our dining room and at banquets! Talk about the 50 mile diet…
Because we’ll definitely be planting some herb action on our plot, I started thinking about my own backyard herb garden. Every year we fill several planters with soil and herbs. Our back deck gets the late afternoon sun, for several hours, and the plants seem to love it. They supply the flavour for our summer cooking all the way into October.
Using my favourite DIY research tool, Pinterest, and my own experience, here are some great tips for planting your own adorable herb garden this spring.
1. Get Creative and Make it Work for Your Space
2. If You’re not a Pro – Label Them!
3. Don’t Have a Yard? Don’t let that Stop You!
