How to Start Herbs Farm? 

Selecting Herbs to Grow 

The first and foremost important step is to select the herbs you want to grow, whether you want to grow commonly available herbs or some unique herbs that aren’t easily available. Selecting the herbs also depends on how much time and care you will be able to give your plants, whether you will be able to give 100% time and care to your plants or you want to start this business as a part-time opportunity. 

Farm Location and Suitability 

The second step is to select the perfect place for your herbs farm and do all the arrangements needed, and gather the important materials. You can set a nursery-like herbs farm or you can also prepare a greenhouse farm, both are suitable and depends upon the plants you will grow. If you are growing evergreen herbs plants, then you can go for a nursery-like farm. But if you want to grow some special plants that require different atmospheric conditions, then you can go for a greenhouse farm. 

Plant the Herb seeds/ cuttings 

The third step is to sow the seeds or herb plants’ cuttings (as per the availability). Sow the seeds in trays and put them indoors/outdoors depending upon the required conditions for a plant. And after the plants start to grow, you can shift them outdoors. Forget not, you need to nurture these plants and give proper care, and in return, these plants will grow happily and will help you get good profits. 

Advertisement & Selling 

Again one of the most important steps, advertise about your herbs farm and connect with the customers. Now depending upon who your customers are, sell the grown herbs or plants. 

The owner of Heera Shree Nursery, Indore, M.P., Pankaj Saini says that medicinal plants are in demand these days, in fact, people love to grow these plants at their homes. And starting a business for these plants can be a great profit-making opportunity.
