Herb container garden with lavender

To enjoy fresh herbs year-round, consider indoor herb gardening. Many herb plants grow well in containers, especially when placed near a sunny windowsill.

Here are a few more tips for growing herbs indoors:

  • Indoor plants have the same basic requirements – sunlight and a well-drained soil mix – as those grown outdoors.
  • Choose a south or west window.
  • Avoid over-watering. Herbs don’t like soggy soil.
  • Once summer comes back around, take them outdoors for the season.
