Save Money! Creating Ground Cover with Oregano & Herb Transplants

Save Money! Creating Ground Cover with Oregano & Herb Transplants

The theme of my next several blog entries is saving money by growing your own transplants. There is no need to pay $3 an herb pot at your local stores. A pack of seeds,  cups and some soil can get you dozens of plants. That equates to like... 10 cents a plant.

I grow many herbs and vegetables indoors during the winter and then I let them mature in cups or containers for several weeks. The end product... I have hundreds of transplants that cost me about 10 cents a plant. I don't have an endless budget. Oregano is so easy to grow... I included the video of my over-seeding oregano practice at the end. Many herbs are extremely easy to grow in doors. I encourage you to give it a try.

This is what I did with my forty or so herb transplants. My cost was maybe $5. I used my oregano as ground cover around my blueberry bushes. They are planted on a slope that won't hold mulch. The rains come and it washes away. My solution... an oregano and herb ground cover. Here is the before and after video.
