Indoor Herb Gardens: Producing New Herbs on Your Windowsill. (Part-1)

Inviting and functional, a window sill herb garden is a great way to enjoy fresh herbs all year round. In order to cultivate your own herbs without leaving your house, below is a detailed guide:

Pick out several herbs that you like and use often in the kitchen. Some popular options are thyme, basil, mint, parsley, cilantro, and chives.

To avoid soil saturation, plant in tiny pots or containers with drainage holes. One option is to use separate containers for each herb, while another is to use a larger planter with several sections.

To avoid soaking the soil too deeply, use a watering can with a narrow spout for targeted watering.

To prevent water from splashing out and ruining your windowsill, set a saucer or tray under the pots.

Choose herbs that are compatible with one another in terms of watering needs and sunshine exposure for successful indoor gardening.

Be sure to plant your herbs at the depths suggested by the manufacturer. Put seeds in the pots or move seedlings from another location.

After planting, give the herbs a good watering. Soil should be kept regularly moist, but not soggy. In between waterings, let the top inch of soil dry out.
