Infuse your kitchen with fresh flavors and a burst of greenery by growing herbs right in your own home. Give your green thumb a go with these easy steps.
Start with seedlings of basil, chives, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, or thyme from a local nursery.
Plant seedlings in any container with good drainage. Add whimsy by growing herbs in a planter mounted to the wall or one hanging over the sink.
Set herbs close to your brightest window-- preferably one that receives at least six hours of sunlight daily. Use a grow light if necessary.
Water just enough to keep the soil moist, harvest in small batches and transplant when herbs outgrow their containers.
