Fresh herbs are great for cooking and also your well-being. But you can’t always buy them, or find them at the grocery store – especially in these strange days of quarantine. So why not grow your own? Don’t let your lack of a garden stop you! Here’s how to get started on growing delicious herbs indoors.
What to Plant
There are a lot of different herbs that you can grow indoors, but these are some of the most popular. If you’re looking to grow others, do some research first to see what they require and if they will work in your home.
Basil: Basil is one of the easiest herbs to grow indoors. It also has many uses such as pesto sauce or pizza topping, so it’s definitely worth growing if you enjoy cooking!
Oregano: Oregano is another great herb for cooking with or enjoying fresh on your salads! It grows well indoors with minimal care and will give your kitchen a fresh smell when it blooms.
Sage: Sage is a beautiful plant that adds texture and height to any room it’s placed in (or even outdoors if temperatures aren’t too hot!). Its leaves make an excellent addition when making dishes such as stuffing or pie crusts!
Where to Plant
You can plant your herbs indoors or outdoors, but the most important thing is to make sure that you have a place where they will thrive. There are many options for growing herbs indoors:
- You can grow them in pots on your windowsill or patio, depending on what type of climate you’re living in.
- You can grow them in hanging baskets and vases that allow plenty of sunlight into the house.
- You can also grow them in planters – just make sure there’s room for drainage!
If you’re looking for an outdoor solution, consider starting small with some container garden beds that are easy to maintain. If there aren’t any available at your local store then build one yourself! It doesn’t need to be fancy; just make sure it has enough room so that all plants get enough sunlight throughout the day (six hours or more) and remember not over-watering will help prevent mold growth later down the road.”
Growing herbs indoors will keep your food and mood healthy.
Herbs are easy to grow indoors. They can either be grown in pots or directly in the ground, and they are easy to care for. Herbs can be harvested at any time during their life cycle, so you don’t have to wait until winter when you’re feeling cold!
