Growing HerbsGrowing Herbs

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.






The Best Time for Herb Gardens


Spring is the best time to start herb gardens, particularly if you are planting herb gardens outdoors, from seed or from cuttings. However herb gardens can be planted whenever seedlings or starter plants are available from nurseries or other retailers. Herb gardens are also versatile enough to be planted in the garden or in containers indoors.


herb gardensWhen you plant herb gardens on the patio or indoors, in planters or flower boxes, you have some control of water and even light. What this means is that you can establish indoor herb gardens just about any time of the year. Having said this, always check seed packets or plant labels to see the best time for planting specific herbs.


Wherever herb gardens are established – indoors or outdoors – it is also possible to ensure that herbs can be harvested all year round. One of the beauties of in-home herb gardens is that you can utilize the leaves of most culinary herbs throughout their growing season. This means that you can even harvest the leaves of annual herbs for most of the year.


Of course some herbs are grown for their roots or seeds, but generally these herbs should be grown in outdoor herb gardens.
