Fertilizing Herbs
When growing herbs in pots should they be fertilized? Mine just don't look as green as they should. I am not sure if they are getting enough water. I always thought they didn't need a lot. I have them in clay pots.They are in full sun.

Herbs generally don't need much fertilizer if they are growing in a good quality potting soil. In pots, they need more water then when they are growing in the ground. I always water mine whenever the soil surface of their pots begins to feel dry. In full sun, in clay pots, they will probably need to be watered every day in the summer, unless it rains."
