How do you create an indoor garden?
Fresh herbs can make a difference in your diet. Instead of buying them at the grocery store and having too many at once or a bunch that aren’t as fresh as they could be, grow your own. Grow variety or just your favorites in a window box or kitchen counter This is a simple introduction to indoor gardening.
You have two options for starting your own herb garden, you can go to your local nursery and buy some seedlings or grow your own from seed. Either way is fine, but if you’re a novice, seedlings are the way to go.
Once you have your seedlings at home, you can replant them or, for the first season, you can leave them in the small plastic container they come in. If you decide to replant them, don’t pack the soil too tightly and keep it A small amount of gravel or wood chips in the bottom of the pot for better drainage.
If you want to grow your herb from seed, follow package directions carefully and use a pot large enough to accommodate future root growth. Herbs also love air circulation, placing them near an open window can provide both the sunlight and air movement they need to thrive.
If your herbs are too big for their container, you can separate a portion of them (including the roots) and transplant them outside in spring or summer. You will double the amount of herbs you can grow. On the flip side, if you already have an outdoor herb garden, it’s a simple matter of bringing a portion of each plant indoors to keep fresh herbs all winter long.
