Project Information

Summary:

The purpose of this project is to plant a herb garden in raised beds. I plan to raise both culinary and medicinal herbs. I plan to stack 8x8x16 blocks high in a 8×8 square. Then I plan to fill them with a mixture of top soil and compost taken from our barn. After a soil test I will add nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus to bring to correct pH balance. Then I will plant 9 plants per bed. If I have room I will plant more.
