Success with Container Production of Twelve Herb Species


Interest in growing herbs for the retail and wholesale market has increased greatly over the past few years. Growers who have had success in the production of
bedding plants have found another profitable avenue in herb production. Herbs have cultural requirements similar to bedding plants and it should be easy for
greenhouse growers to add herbs to their production schedule. The majority of herbs discussed in this article can be sown, transplanted, and finished by the grower.

vegetatively and would require growing stock plants.
