Growing herbs is an easy way for beginners to start indoor gardening.
To start your own herb garden you have two options:
- You can go to your local nursery and purchase some seedlings.
- Or grow your own from seed.
Either way is fine but if you’re just getting started the seedlings are the easy 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 pot that they come in.
If you do decide to replant them, don’t pack in the soil too tightly and place a small amount of gravel or wood chips at the bottom of the pot for good drainage.
Or if you want to grow your herbs from seeds, follow the instructions on the package carefully and use a container large enough for future root growth.
Finally, if you’re not ready for an indoor wall herb garden you can always begin with a kitchen herb garden indoor, in a coffee cup.
You can also go all out with an indoor herb garden wall. All you need is an indoor wall planter like this one.
Herb Growing Tips…
Herbs like air circulation, placing them on a wall near an open window can provide both the sunshine and air movement that they need to thrive.
And if your herbs are growing too large for their pots, you can separate a portion of them and transplant them outside.
Make sure to read the recommendations and instructions that comes with your herb plants because not all herbs are suitable for indoor gardening.
Herb gardening indoors is fun and it’s also good for relaxation.
So if you’re considering starting an indoor garden then there are so many fun ways to get going. Whether it’s a small wall herb garden in the kitchen, or vegetables grown in pots, you can bet it will be fun…
