  • Attractive and diverse garden aesthetics
  • Different growing seasons ensure a continuous supply of fresh herbs
  • A mix of easy-to-grow and more challenging spices to expand your gardening skills

3.  High-Quality Seeds

When purchasing an herb seed variety pack, you want to ensure that you receive quality seeds.  Look for packages that include open-pollinated heirloom seeds.  High-quality sources will increase the likelihood of successful growth, resulting in a bountiful herb garden.  We have many high-quality, high-germination heirloom herb seeds for sale in our shop.

4.  Indoor and Outdoor Growing Options

Whether you have a spacious vegetable garden or limited space indoors, an herb seed variety pack can accommodate your needs.  Many herbs can be grown successfully in containers or small areas, making them perfect for apartment dwellers or those with limited outdoor space.

Indoor Growing Tips

  • Choose a well-lit area, preferably near a south-facing window
  • Use quality potting soil and appropriate-sized containers
  • Provide proper drainage for each container
  • Monitor temperature and humidity, ensuring optimal growing conditions
  • Regularly water and fertilize your herbs

Outdoor Growing Tips

  • Select a location with well-draining soil and ample sunlight
  • Consider using raised beds to improve drainage and soil quality
  • Follow the recommended planting and spacing guidelines for each herb
  • Water and fertilize your seasonings as needed

5.  Culinary Delights from Your Herb Garden

Growing various herbs allows you to experiment with new and exciting flavors in your cooking.  Many herbs included in variety packs, such as cilantro, dill, and basil, are staples in a culinary herb garden.  In addition, you may also discover lesser-known herbs like summer savory or lemon balm, broadening your culinary repertoire.

6.  Health and Wellness Benefits

Many herbs offer potential health benefits, such as improving digestion, reducing inflammation, and promoting relaxation.  Growing your own herbs can ensure a fresh, chemical-free supply to incorporate into teas, tinctures, and other home remedies.

7.  Environmental Benefits

Growing your own herbs reduces the need for store-bought herbs, often in non-recyclable packaging.  Also, cultivating your herb garden can help support local pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, essential for maintaining a healthy ecosystem.
