Growing herbs in your indoor garden is a great way to transform the way your home and garden looks and also grow something that is very useful in the kitchen. It is a rewarding experience to see the herb garden seeds that you planted grow and thrive in your indoor garden. With the right gardening tools you can have a continuous supply of fresh herbs from your garden. Here are some of the herbs that can be grown easily in your indoor garden.
Parsley Parsley is an herb that can be easily grown from garden seeds or a clump. This sun-loving plant requires five to six hours of sunlight every day. Place them on a sunny, south-facing window and turn the pot every 3 or 4 days so that it receives uniform sunlight throughout. On days when there is low sunlight, you will have to use fluorescent lighting to supplement its growth.
Basil Basil can be easily grown and it flourishes indoors as well as outdoors. Along with flavoring food, this fragrant herb can also be used for making aromatic oils and also add to your home decor. Use gardening tools to regularly prune this plant to maintain its aesthetic value and make sure it receives a lot of sunlight. Use organic fertilizer while growing basil indoors to help improve the depth of its flavor and also maintain the pH levels of the soil.
Cilantro While growing cilantro indoors from garden seeds, make sure it receives sufficient nutrition. Using your gardening tools plant the seeds in a mixture of sand and potting soil which has a good amount of fertilizers. The sand in the mixture helps water move more freely. Choose pots that have adequate drainage outlets. Thorough watering is important while growing cilantro indoors but make sure it is watered only when the soil is dry to touch.
Oregano This herb is very easy to grow and care for at home. Usually grown from cuttings, you can plant them in pots that have sufficient drainage. It is a great idea to keep them where they receive sunlight at least three to five hours in a day. Keeping it fertilized and pruned regularly will make sure this aromatic kitchen herb thrives indoors. You can also pair oregano with other herbs like sage, thyme and bay that need the same growing conditions.
