Do you use fertilizer on your herbs? How do you fertilize- dry, liquid? Do you make your own fertilizer? If so, what recipe do you use?
Wondering because I'm looking into organic fertilizer and I'd really like to make my own liquid fertilizer, but some of these recipes are complicated and have weird ingredients.
Thanks!

Every year before the spring shoots appear I give my herb garden a top dressing of homemade compost and that's it. The garden includes a variety of mints, oregano, parsley, chives, sage, and raspberries.

I will agree. An organic compost would be the way to go. In my experience, too much fertilizer causes too much growth and less of the herbal oils that give them their flavor.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
