Love organic fresh herbs for your meal? Here are some indoor herb garden ideas. We will share with you 10+ herbs that you can grow indoor year round. Bad weather or lack of outdoor space shouldn’t stop a green thumb.
It feels so great to just step into your garden to pick fresh herbs when you are preparing your meal. Your own fresh leaves taste so much better than the ones you bought from grocery.
If you have limited yard space or it is winter, can you still grow herbs? The answer is of course yes. You don’t have to forgo the pleasure of home-grown fresh herbs in such situations. There are some herbs that don’t require much sunlight and warmth. They are perfect to grow indoor year long.
To ensure success, you will need a bright spot in your space, such as a sun room, sunny window sill, or room with skylights. Most herbs need at least four to six hours of bright light to thrive. Ideally, the temperature should be between 55 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit with good air circulation.
Start with basic herbs, such as thyme, parsley, basil or rosemary. Expand your effect by trying more varieties. And if you are a beginner, we recommend you to start with plants, rather than seeds. You can start your own seedlings once you become more experienced.
After choosing your herb, pick the right pots for your space. Most herbs like good drainage. Place saucers under your pots as needed. You also used recycled materials, such as water bottles and buckets.
Water your plants regularly so that the soil is moist but not soggy. Watch your herbs grow and thrive.
