You may use them every time you cook but you may not realize how easy it is to grow your own.
When you plant a garden of herbs you can enjoy fresh herbs
with your meals everyday.
Because herbs are great when they are grown indoors it does
not matter when you decide to start your herb garden.
The main thing you need to remember is that herbs need
great soil, good lighting, and a warm temperature in order
to grow successfully.
If you can provide these three ingredients and add a little
time you can enjoy fresh herbs conveniently and easily
right from your own herb garden.
Some of the more popular herbs to grow include: Chives,
Oregano, Cilantro, Basil, and Parsley but you can grow any
combinations of herbs that you wish to grow.
To get started in your herb garden you need to find a nice
spot in your home that provides warmth and light. If you
have a problem locating a place try using artificial
lighting in order to make your herb garden grow.
With artificial lighting you can put your herb garden
anywhere you would like. Next you need a pot or box to
plant your herbs in. Add your soil, fertilize it if
necessary and then add your herbs to it.
Always add enough water to give your seeds a good start and
then water as often as needed. Check to make sure that the
light is not too much for the herbs but it is enough to
supply light to the herbs in order to make them grow.
