Whether you have an indoor herb garden, or grown one in a container on the patio or in a lavish herb garden, growing herbs is a past-time that brings great pleasure and satisfaction. An indoor herb garden in particular can provide you with a constant in-home source of popular herbs for color, cooking and aroma.

Expert Tips about Growing Herbs Indoors

 

  1. Herbs make excellent potted plants, which is an advantage when growing herbs indoors.

     

  2. When growing herbs indoors, make sure you choose pots that have sufficient space for the mass of roots the plants will produce.

  3. Containers for growing herbs indoors should match the height and shape of the plants to be grown. Also, when growing herbs indoors remember to use a plastic saucer to protect surface areas where you place herb containers.

     

  4. Don’t overlook hanging baskets when growing herbs indoors. Mix creeping and cascading herbs for effect.

     

  5. Use plant labels for growing herbs indoors to properly identify what you’re growing.

     

  6. Good soil and regular watering are essential when growing herbs indoors.

  7. Always use a top quality potting mix – not garden soil – when growing herbs indoors.

     

  8. Don’t forget about drainage when growing herbs indoors. Put gravel or stones at the base of the pot and place it on a saucer or tray, and make sure there are drainage holes in the pot.

     

  9. When growing herbs indoors always remember that the plants need a well-lit, bright position, but not direct sunlight, especially through glass.

     

  10. You can grow different herbs together, but when growing herbs indoors, in containers, be careful of those with invasive root systems, like mint or lemon balm.
