We love coriander and would use about 3 big supermarket bunches a week.
My coriander is never going to produce that much!!
This spring I've planted
They're all going crazy except the mint?

Currently I have coriander, spring onion, thyme, lemon grass, Thai basil, Vietnamese mint, dill, lettuce, chilli, tomato & lemon.
I bought coriander seeds at the spice section of any store. They're so easy to grow and grow quickly too. I plant a handful of seeds on one day, then another handful 2 weeks later... so I always have coriander handy.
I bought lemon grass from a vegetable shop, chose a few that were old put them in a glass of water, change water every few days. When root came out, i planted them in a corner of our yard. They grew into a big bush in no time. I did the same thing with rosemary, unfortunately my husband accidentally killed it when he mowed the lawn. He killed my ginger too
Tomato is the easiest thing to grow. Basil, dill, onion, mint, lemon. thyme are doing fine but very slow. Chilli is dying. I've never had luck with chilli & cucumber. It's annoying because we eat cucumber a lot. Something always eat the cucumber trees when they're a bout 15cm.
What kind of fertilizer that you guys use? I only water everyday & with seasol about once a month.

How far apart would you plant lettuces? I find mine are bunching up too much?

Decided on a small pallet herb garden, starting out with chives, parsley, oregano and basil. Will see how I go with them and expand it if they're a success. Thanks for all of your advice!

Ok so I subscribed to this thread and was so inspired I got me a little herb garden going.
Basil, coriander and parsley in one big pot, thyme and oregano in another, mint on it's own, as well as a chili plant and mini tomato plant in their own pots too.
Question though, how do I keep the bugs and pests away? Especially without using pesticides?
I'm so not a gardener.
