Soil preparation
Successful organic gardening depends upon the large part of soil you build. Start with any native soil and keep on adding the right organic nutrients nourish the plants. Then the bed is left for mellowing for a month or more and gets growing.

Step One
Evaluate the native soil. Whether you have tested or drawn any conclusions, determine its need of macronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and trace elements. Use own experience or ask a gardener to teach about the additional nutrients that local soils need for the farming of a particular herb.

Step Two
Amend the soil with elemental organic fertilizers. Per bag are having only one or two ingredients. Find local sources for nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and trace elements and further be committed for the use of organic methods only.

Step Three
Improve the native soil by adding organic matter that serves two important benefits - more water retention and better drainage. Animal manure is combined with organic matter and nutrients along with other organic matter such as ground bark, compost, leaf mold or peat moss.

Step Four
Read fertilizer labels and applies the amount to the garden area in the same quantity as mentioned on the labels. Use this rule for adding organic matter - 3 inches of native soil can suitably incorporate 4 to 6 inches of combined manure, compost and other nutrients.

Step Five
Add an inch of sand to this mixture plus lime if indicated after that start digging the elements together. Finally make it sure that no separate layers form after tilling.

Propagation is the most crucial part of a plant’s life because if there is no successful propagation, plants can’t live long to reproduce. Cloning is considered as one of the most exciting propagation techniques because it facilitates a gardener to reproduce any favorite plant. But as compared to propagation the process seems to be a bit challenging. The main purpose of a growing medium is to hold oxygen, water and nutrients and enchors the root system providing proper support.
