We all wish it were that simple! Unfortunately, different plant species have different growing requirements. Columbine is prized because it blooms handsomely in part shade. Growing from seed this year will result in blooms next year. Herbs that have soft stems like basil grow best in full sun. Herbs like soil that is consistently moist. Lavender and other woody herbs like thyme are from the hot, sunny, sandy soils of the Mediterranean. They must be in fast-draining soil and allowed to dry out completely between waterings. You can add coarse sand or pebbles to regular potting mix to make it drain and dry faster. Lavender does best without a lot of fertilizer. I think just Miracle Grow potting mix is enough fertilizer for all your plants this summer. Too much fertilizer isn't good so don't use the liquid fertilizer this year. Good luck.
