The Secrets Of Growing Organic Herbs & Spices 栽种有机香草香料的秘密
There seems to be a growing trend, People are beginning to adopt ‘Organic LifeStyle’ direction and looking into natural Health more seriously.
Over the years, we are seeing more people, even the young and career minded, signing up for our Growing Organic Herbs workshops.
This is really wonderful news, for people to begin to trust in Nature’s gifts & medicine.
However to many, keeping a plant alive and healthy is already a challenge. Let alone growing Organically. You might be able to relate to some of the following:
How do I start? What kind of soil should I use?
I don’t have green fingers. I am a plant killer!
I am new to gardening, what is the easiest plant to grow?
I can’t find any good gardening advice. Everything I tried seems to fail.
My leaves will turn yellow and die off
Most will scour the internet to try to search for answers. And many times it almost seems impossible to find an effective solution. Some will even feel like giving up.
Sometimes all we need is a practical tip or two. Maybe even some basic advice to keep a plant alive.
Or even better, step-by-step guidance from an expert or Farmer who’s been there and done that.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could grow your own Flourishing Organic Herb Garden full of Useful and Delicious Herbs?
YES, YOU CAN !
With the simple practical tips and many success stories from Gardens With Purpose, you really can.
