Have you ever been interested in starting your own garden and you don't know where to begin? Don’t worry, because growing herbs as your first garden can be a fun and easy way to start your gardening experience. Herb gardens are fairly easy to start and there really is no upkeep.
How Do You Keep Herbs Alive Indoors?
To start with your herb garden, the garden will need nutrient rich soil, sunlight or artificial light, and a lot of water. You will need to make to sure to balance water and light to ensure the herbs are alive and are not wilting. If you prefer to avoid watering and maintaining light, I would recommend using an Aerogarden and trying their 6-pack Herbs bundle pod. The pod includes easy set herbs such as: Mint, Basil, Thai basil, Parsley, Dill and Thyme. They provide everything you need, but water.
As a beginner gardener, please don’t be intimidated! When you grow herbs indoors, it is a much easier task than you might think. Especially with some of the done-for-you set-ups like the Aerogarden or even set ups from your local garden, you will growing your herbs in no time.
For any new hobby, it’s important to read about the herbs you’re growing. Do they need direct sunlight? Indirect sunlight? You can grow herbs indoors or outdoors, but many people prefer the ease of having them inside - usually on the windowsill or on a table with a greenhouse. I one time had my garden with the IKEA greenhouse and my herbs grew beautifully. Although, for herbs grown outdoors, they do product more plentiful herbs and they seem to last longer, but I’ve never had any issues keeping herbs alive indoors.
The IKEA greenhouse I used for my indoor herb garden. I produced great herbs with this greenhouse and it maintains the humidity and heat for my plants. Here is the link for the greenhouse> IKEA GREENHOUSE.
