Herbs

Zone Jerusalem | Anonymous added on June 13, 2018 | Answered

I've had done herbs for less than two weeks and they're not doing very well. The problem is I can't tell if I'm overwatering or underwatering them. Any tips how to know? It seems strange I can't tell these apart. They're in partial sunlight and we water them every few days when the earth seems dry inside.

I can't get a good idea what size container you may be using. If the container is too large, it can be difficult to tell is the soil is overwatered. Soil should be moist, but never soggy or dried out. Roots can suffer root rot easily in a container that is too large.
Individual pots would also be a suggestion. Also your Herbs need full sun. 6 plus hours of sunlight.
