Enjoy fresh and fragrant rosemary, chives and other tasty herbs all winter by growing them in a sunny window. Make it easy to snip herbs and add flavor or garnish to any meal by choosing a spot close to the kitchen. The easiest herbs to grow indoors include rosemary, chives, oregano, thyme, lemongrass and mint.

Grow an Indoor Herb Garden:  

  1. Choose 6” deep pots with drainage holes and saucer. Fill halfway with potting soil.
  2. Remove herbs from containers by pushing from the bottom. Gently loosen roots and place plant in pot.
  3. Fill with soil up to the depth the plants were growing in the original pots.
  4. Water well.
  5. Place plants in a sunny window that receives at least 6 hours of strong sunlight each day.
  6. Water as needed to keep the soil lightly moist, but don’t overwater.
  7. Feed with a half-strength solution of a water-soluble houseplant fertilizer every two weeks.

Tip:

Plants grow toward the sun so be sure to rotate them.
