The cultivation of exotic herbs is not difficult if the basic guidelines for care are observed.
Above all, the soil is important. Neither garden soil nor pot plant soil is suitable for their cultivation. Mix your own earth from one third pot plant soil, loamy garden soil and sand. You can also buy the mixture ready-made in DIY superstores.
The herbs should be evenly watered, but the soil should never be left permanently wet. Regular light is also important for the plants. They will die if not given enough light.
Dry heating air can damage your plants. The ideal location is on a well-lit kitchen windowsill, a cool cellar windowsill or on a staircase.
