Three super easy herbs to grow for your garden or in an indoor window sill. Instead of [UNKNOWN] some sage you can purchase these at your local garden center. When planting your pots, be sure to use name brand well draining soil. And don't forget make sure your pots have drainage holes in the bottom. You will need to keep the soil moist for the first few weeks then let the soil get a little bit dry between waterings to prevent root rot. Be sure not to over-fertilize these nature plants grow too fast and lessens the concentration of oils that give them that great flavor. So enjoy your herb garden to its fullest, you can make cuttings for your seasonal recipes, and fragrant bouquets for your house. [MUSIC]
