Planting herbs on your balcony or lawn isn't complicated. And the good news is you don't need green fingers to grow them.
Plant nursery owner Steven Teh said most plants would generally grow well with primary care know-how.
"It is essential to know your plants and determine if they can thrive indoors or outdoors. Certain herbs and plants like jasmine and roses need direct sun to survive.
"While the Internet and social media are excellent sources of knowledge, they are also frequent sources of misinformation. Many gardening websites are written by horticulturists based in the United States and Great Britain, where the weather conditions differ significantly from Malaysia. "Some information can be misleading, so it is advisable to read up on plants on local websites and Facebook groups," said Teh. He shares these tips on how to help your herbs thrive in a tropical climate.
