Repotting 101

Once your herb seedlings start growing roots, it's time to transfer them to a more permanent home.  Follow these steps to ensure a smooth transition. 

Select a container that is at least 6" in diameter -- we want to ensure the herbs have plenty of room to grow!

Add potting soil to the container until it's almost full then dig a small hole in the center.

Place your herb plant into the center of the container then gently press the soil around the plant.

Water the soil thoroughly.  If needed, add more soil to the container so only 1" remains between the top of the soil and the top of the container.

Happy transplanting! 


The Perfect Go Green! Pesto Recipe
