    Default potting plants

    I just potted some rosemary, thyme, mint and parsley for the first time.

    I hope I did it right - I loosened the roots, put it in a pot with fresh soil, added some sugar cane mulch and osmocote and watered it.

    Is this right? I don't have a green thumb at all!!

    The plastic ones are fine as long as they have holes in the bottom for drainage. Just water them every day and leave them in the sun

    Yep they have drainage holes. I really want my herbs to grow, I hate buying a bunch of parsley because it goes yuck before I've used it all, and I think dried herbs taste like blaaaah!
