I've already tried to start my own herb garden at home however I failed twice already. I guess I am not blessed with a green thumb.
Do not give up. Once you get to ustand what is involved & why yr plants thrive or die, u’ll enjoy many moments of relaxation/de-stressing & Joy.

Some issues to watch :-

1. Over-watering/under-watering?
2. Pests such as white mealies, aphids, whiteflies, etc?
3. Sufficient nutrient? Right nutrient?

If u’re trying to root yr herbs do rmbr to change water daily & do not drown them in too much water. Abt 1/2 cm of water or level covering up a node so the roots will develop.

Hope u enjoy yr hobby!

I wanted to start again our own indoor herb gardening in our new house. Have you tried to buy your gardening needs online? On which website?

// Community-led Project: Biodiverse Edible Garden in a park //

Dear all, a few of us in the Collective are starting a biodiverse edible garden in a park, with Tang Hung Bun as the lead grower. We are starting the garden soon, and will share more when we are ready! :)

Mr Tang kindly hosted a Community Day session earlier this year. The success & learnings he had to create a biodiverse edible garden in a school setting has inspired quite a few ideas, one of which is this garden project.

If you are keen to join the team, let us know! We are looking for people who:

Want to grow food / do community composting / enhance habitats for biodiversity
Keen to learn in a collective leadership setting, with Mr Tang as lead grower
Live close to Boon Lay MRT or don't mind to travel there at least 2x a week to care for the garden

Hello! I am a new parent-member of this forum. I am also interested in grown my own herbs at home. How did you start doing it? Which plants/herbs should I start planting that will surely grow and will not let me feel frustrated?

You can try lazada/redmart. But it's more fun visiting nursery

Basil and mint are quite easy to grow in our climate.
For ornamental plants which can withstand neglect, try sanseveria (mother in law tongue/snakeplant) or ficus elastica (rubber plant) or moneyplant
