4 Tips for a successful indoor herb garden

Herbs are essential to enhance the taste of your dishes. While dry herbs can be a good alternative, fresh herbs on the other hand provide more flavor and nutritional value. Here are some tips to creating your own indoor herb garden.

  1. Provide strong light for your indoor herb garden – The more light you provide your herb garden, the better they will grow and taste. You should look at providing your herbs with at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight.
  2. The temperature – Look at providing your herbs with a temperature of between 60-70 degrees. If your herbs are maturing and you want to slow its growth, look at reducing the temperature to 65 to 70 degrees.
  3. An infrequent, slow watering – Look at watering your herbs once they have dried out. Test the soil by using your finger. The soil should be dry two inches from the top before you give your herbs any water.

Select the best herb pots – Your herb pots should have proper drainage holes to let out extra water. Your pots should also include saucers to collect extra water and reduce damage to a tabletop or a shelf. Select the size of your pot according to how your herb will grow, for example, if your herb has longer roots; it may benefit from a deeper pot. Choose the material for your pot, according to the humidity levels in your home. For example, clay pots will dry out fast, while ceramic will hold in water.
