Indoor Herb Gardens


Apartment dwellers and home renters can enjoy the pleasures of cultivating and harvesting their own indoor herb gardens. There are a surprising number of plants that flourish indoors with proper care and attention.  


Here are some helpful hints to help you get started in maintaining a bountiful indoor herb harvest. 

Containers : Herbs grow well in small to medium-sized pots.  Clay or terra-cotta pots are decorative and work well with indoor planting. You may also want to try growing in glazed pots, window boxes, or even a hanging basket. 

  • Drainage: Herbs require a growing medium with good drainage. If the roots are soaking in water, they will not grow or survive.

  • Temperature & Light:  Keep plants away from areas with varying temperatures such as a winter window or a stove.  Make sure the plants are receiving plenty of light.  You may need be rotate plants to ensure all have even light. 



Choose your selection based on your culinary preferences. Most of these plants can be mixed within the same container to create a contrasting arrangement. Some plants such as rosemary , bay and mint should probably be contained in their own pot.  They have a tendency to roam and may overpower the other herbs sharing the space. 


After you have established your own indoor herb garden and harvested your hard work, you will experience the peace and joy of "working the soil" (even if it is indoors) !
