So I am looking at doing an herb garden for this summer. I just looked on a website about growing herbs etc & the ones that we would use would be basil, chives, lavender, mint & parsley. So anyone have any tips? Can I put all of these in the same plot? Someone told me mint tends to take over an area & spread around so should I have it in its own contained area? Will the Lavender & other scents smell weird/funny in the same location? Well then again it did say mint dosent like manure etc so maybe I should just have a small seperate side spot for it? What do you ladies think?
How about nutmeg does that grown via ground or what? I am going to google that one lol As I am sure you can tell I am a first time gardner & am young so have no clue what I am doing here!
Also I have a plot further away from the house that is very moist. What would you suggest I put in that plot? My sister told me they had corn, tomatos down there & that they did fine. How about pumpkins easy or hard to grow & where should I do those or has the time passed for me to plant them for fall?
Any tips are great thanks ladies! Oh yeah I live in central Maine so changing seasons & all that jazz.
