Herb gardens are a wonderful addition to the edible landscape.  Herb gardening in Sacramento County can be a rewarding experience when you consider a few basics. 

  • Herbs need at least 5 to 6 hours of sunlight per day. 

  • Fertilizing herbs should be done once or twice per season with a low nitrogen, organic fertilizer. 

  • Prune herbs to create an abundance of harvests throughout the growing season and to maintain their shape.

Below is a collection of resources just for the home gardener.  For details on the herbs at the Fair Oaks Horticulture Center, visit the link in the gold bar above.
