Herbs to grow year round ll The Home Depot Garden Club

Grow fresh herbs year-round because they’re the perfect addition to meals. Once you pick what herbs to grow year-round, all you need is a pot with drainage holes and a sunny window. Of course, don’t forget to pot up herbs in pretty containers so they’ll blend in with your kitchen decor.

6 Herbs to Grow Year-Round:


Grow basil indoors ll The Home Depot Garden Club

1. Basil

Start basil in well-draining potting soil. Place pots in a south-facing window because basil likes lots of sun and warmth. Water when the potting soil is dry to the touch.


Grow parsley indoors ll The Home Depot Garden Club

2. Parsley

Choose parsley seedlings and plant in well-draining potting mix. Parsley likes full sun but is able to grow in an east- or west-facing window. Remember that in shade, water doesn’t evaporate as quickly, so check soil to ensure it’s dried out between waterings.

Feed the plants every two weeks with half-strength liquid fertilizer.


Grow mint indoors ll The Home Depot Garden Club

3. Mint

No light? No problem. Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow and can survive, even thrive, with little light. Plant in potting mix and water regularly. Pinch back mint every couple of weeks.


Grow sage indoors ll The Home Depot Garden Club

4. Sage

Sage can be started from seeds or seedlings. Plant in well-draining potting mix and place in full sun.


Grow thyme indoors ll The Home Depot Garden Club

5. Thyme

Start thyme seedlings indoors in well-drained potting mix. Thyme likes full sun but will grow in an east- or west-facing window.


Grow rosemary indoors ll The Home Depot Garden Club

6. Rosemary

Start rosemary seedlings in well-draining potting mix. This Mediterranean plant likes full sun and dry conditions. Only water when the top of the soil is dry. But never let the soil dry out completely.

Place your pot near doorways so you can enjoy the scent as you walk by. Use floral snips to trim off ends as you cook.
