Create An Indoor Herb Garden

You'll need:
-Various herb seeds

-Long flower pot, hang out the window kind
-Potting soil, Ph of 6 or 7


This is so easy to do and can be done in pretty much any kind of weather since your plants will stay indoors. Some favorite herbs to try are Basil, Oregano, Thyme, Parsley, and Chives. You can also make a "sweet" herb garden with herbs like Mint, Lavender and Chamomile.

Plant seeds about 4-5 inches apart in the long flower pot, following the directions on each seed packet for planting depth. You may want to plant 2-3 of each seed in the same area to ensure at least one will grow. You can also plant them individually in their own separate container.

Remember to water when the soil looks dry and keep the container close to a window so it will get enough sun. Most seeds will sprout in 8-10 days. A kitchen window sill is the perfect place. If you grow your herbs indoor during the cold months and they get too big, just transplant them outdoors when Spring comes.

Use your herbs to make aromatic oils.
