need advice from a person with a green thumb?

Posted under Home gardening advice | No Comment

hi,
I am planning to move out of home and i am interested in gardening. I will be renting so therefore most of my plant will be in pots, i am interested in growing herbs and colour flowers and ferns that are cheap and overall easy to maintain.
any tips about soils types,fertilises, herbs, types of colourful flowers that are cheap and easy to grow in pots.
i'm in australia and i would prefer someone who knows the climate down her in nsw nearly summer.
thank you.

    Not sure about your climate, I live in the US but , herbs need alot of bright light, miracle grow fertilizer and potting soil are cheap and work the best.
    If you want to grow herbs indoors buy seeds. Basil, parsley, rosemary, cilantro are all very easy to grow from seed but need bright light. Basil blooms pretty white flowers. Not sure about the rest but they all produce seeds that you can save and plant next year. Good Luck to you hun!
