no previous part Part 1 of "A Way To Grow" Video Series series Part 2: New Video Series For Beginner Gardeners! »

Enjoy this short and informative video about growing some popular herbs used in cocktails! We call it “Cocktail Gardening: Grow Mint, Basil and Cilantro.”

You choose if you want to add alcohol to your favorite drinks, or not!

My new video series, “Way to Grow” is an entertaining (I hope!) show where I teach a couple of young women how to garden. We also do some creative design projects including miniature and fairy gardens, terrariums, vertical gardens, garden crafts, etc.

Thanks for watching and please share the link if you like the series!

I visit garden trade shows and video tape what I feel are the best new products. These are not paid advertisements, just my professional opinion. See more videos at www.GardenCenterTV.com

Debbie, I have to hand it to you. You are on top of this community! I’m sure GardenTenders appreciates your work.

How’s the weather in your part of the world? We are in a long-heat wave here in Los Angeles. My veg garden isn’t ready to change over yet.

we are entering fall …. cooler temperatures, for the most part, and rain—a cold rain at the moment.. brrrr.
Our gardening season is coming to an end which means daydreaming and making big plans is about to begin!! hahaaha (a perfect time for your videos!)

Thanks Debbie. I can’t even imagine a growing season that ends. I kind of envy those who have a change!

the pros and cons …
it’s nice to have fresh food all year round but it is also nice to have that break and the planning/dreaming time.

I took some fresh cut herbs to work to share (I work at a university) and the student workers snatched up the mint for mojitos. Never thought of using basil or for beverages, but I can see where a bit of cilantro might be good in a bloody mary.

JustJoel- interesting. I always thought vegetable gardening would pull young people towards gardening. Maybe it will be herbs and cocktails. Thanks for commenting!
