If you have already tackled the skill of RV cooking, you can work on perking up your meals with fresh herbs that you can grow right in your RV. An herb garden is easy to care for and compact, making them just right for any mobile home.
Select Your Herbs
Steer yourself away from some of the options that grow to be far too big for small container gardens. Great options for your RV herb garden include chives, oregano, rosemary, thyme, sweet basil and marjoram.
Look for deep pots that have good drainage holes on the bottom so that you can easily let the excess water drain away. Place a layer of small pebbles in the bottom of the container, then add rich potting soil. From the seed to your table, herb growing in your RV will take about a month. You just need to be sure that you are watering them as needed and that there is plenty of sunlight for the growing process. On occasion, you may want to apply a good organic fertilizer to help them get the boost that they need.
The pruning of your herbs will be best to help them grow vigorously into a hardy specimen. The more you prune and use your herbs, the more they are going to grow.
Check your soil every day and be sure that you give the herbs a good soak if the soil is dry to the touch. Another good rule of thumb is at least six hours of quality sunlight each day, or you can use a lamp for simulating natural light if need be.
The nice thing about putting together a small RV herb garden is that you should be able to easily move your plants from your RV to your home whenever you are not going to be on a camping trip. The herbs will be wonderful year round and great for any dishes, at home, or when you are traveling.
