Herb garden kits offer everything you need to plant an herb garden indoors.
Whether you choose a kit with seeds or live herb plants, all you need to do is water and watch it grow. How easy is that?
Okay, you also need to provide some sunlight. Choose a warm, sunny windowsill in your kitchen. That will give them the light they need, as well as keep your fresh culinary herbs handy for cooking.
Place your herbs near a window. Most herbs thrive with at least 6 hours of direct sun a day. If you don't have a sunny spot, artificial light works just fine.
Also, check the soil for water at least a couple times a week. Growing herbs are thirsty. And if there are several plants in one container, water is used up faster than with one plant per pot.
Perfect for beginners, herb kits take the guesswork out of what to grow, how to plant, which soil to use, etc. They get you started with a few popular herbs that are easy to grow.
They're space-savers, too. Kits allow you to pack a lot of herbs in a small space. Another benefit is that the plants are grouped together, helping them to maintain the humidity they need to thrive.
Even if you plan to plant an herb garden outdoors, you can get a jump on the season by starting them with an indoor herb garden kit.
