My herb garden and $25 AmEx gift card giveaway

*This is a sponsored post by Central Garden & Pet. All opinions and experiences are my own. There is a $25 giveaway at the end of this post."
Over the weekend, I did my favorite part of gardening. I pruned last year's herbs, and planted a few new ones. I have chives, lavender, cilantro, and basil. (Can't wait to make salsa and pesto)!

Clearly, they needed a little haircut :)

So this year, instead of filling my planter boxes with new soil, I decided to try Alaska Fish Fertilizer to add nutrients to my existing soil. It will be a fun experiment.

 To use it, you just use a small amount and dilute it in water. I used 1 tablespoon per half gallon of water. (Don't be frightened by its looks, lol. I know what you're thinking)!

I stirred it up to dilute, and then watered my herbs.

Here's a little more info:
·        Alaska® Fish and Kelp Fertilizers are highly effective, natural organic alternatives to synthetic fertilizers. Nutrient rich fish enrich soil, and enhance the strength and vigor of plants.
·        An all-purpose deodorized fish emulsion, Alaska Fish Fertilizer 5-1-1 can be used on all types of indoor and outdoor plants.
·        An essential building block for healthy soil, Alaska Fish Fertilizer 5-1-1 stimulates micro-organisms to build soil content. It doesn’t cause your plants to “burn” or become dried out to a point where plants are unable to recover.
·        Alaska® by Pennington® Pure Kelp Plant Food is an all-natural plant food made from North Atlantic Sea Kelp that contains 11 essential nutrients and can be used in hydroponic gardening systems and indoors year-round.
