Speaking on the show, the gardening expert explained how to grow different herbs in the same trough.
He said: “You know people say, 'I don’t have a garden or I haven’t got a lot of room.'
“You can get a trough and you can get multi-purpose compost in it and you can get herbs.
“You can buy them in pots like this…here’s mint, very invasive…the key with this is outside your back door.”Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

For those without a garden, placing herbs by a window sill so that they have enough sunlight will also work.
Alan added: “We’ve got mint, we’ve got thyme, we’ve got sage, parsley, chives, basil…in a sunny spot, right by your kitchen window, you can go out and get a bit.
“Even if you’re not using them, the smell is what it’s for.”
The expert took the herbs out of their brown pots before placing them close to each other in the trough.
