No space for a garden outside? No problem! Let me show you how to grow an herb garden inside your home. It’s easy and super convenient.
I’ve received several emails from readers telling me that they wished they had space in their yard for a vegetable and / or herb garden, and I’ve taken this to heart. So, I’m going to show you how to grow a garden inside your home, focusing on an herb garden.
The beauty of having a garden is that there are very few limits. With ample light and a nice sized pot to plant in, you’re good to go. Strawberry pots are one of my favorite planters because of their separate compartments, if you will, and ample space for herbs to grow, and even lettuces. These types of pots take up very little space, and if you have room in your kitchen in front of a window to place one, then you have the convenience of an herb garden right at your fingertips when you’re cooking.
My rule of thumb when planting herbs in a container is to choose to plant the ones that you use the most. Your go-to’s that you add to most meals. I happen to use parsley and thyme in almost every dish, with basil, dill and rosemary as runner ups, perfect to add in salads and flavored butters.
Having an herb garden indoors is easy. All you need is a roomy pot, ample sunlight streaming in the window. Still, if you have extremely limited space, a few small individual pots of herbs sitting on a windowsill is a great indoor herb garden solution as well. With just a little ingenuity, you can have a garden inside your home.
