If you are in a tiny space with no land to plant any herbs or plants in you could create your own little indoor herb garden on your windowsill. If there is sprinkler system going over,it should be planted separately to the others as every herb garden has to have the basic of parsley in it. Parsley just as lavender is just some of those plants that actually don’t want water all over it; just the soil needs to stay moist.
