Growing Herbs at Homecomments (0) February 13th, 2014 in gallery
Growing your own herbs is a perfect way to have fresh spices at your disposal. There are many places in which you can grow them in your home, including in pots, baskets and even hanging them up in pockets on the wall. Read on and check the following ideas of how to cultivate herbs in your home.
Grow What You Need
This might sound obvious, but I still think it should be pointed out. Grow your herbs according to the season. For example, in the summer you can have basil, while in at the end of the winter or early spring you can go for dill or coriander.
On the other hand, perennials such as thyme, rosemary and sage are a must for any home-made herb garden, all year long.
Take Them Out
Just because you are growing your herbs at home, it doesn't mean they have to stay solely under your roof. As a matter of fact gardening specialists around Blackburn will tell you that only a handful of plants can stay indoors for weeks and even months. For example, mint and basil can grow perfectly if you leave them in a sunny spot in the kitchen, for example, but at some point pests will find them and that will be all.
The best you can do, in order to increase their survival chances, is to place them on a windowsill. However, if the ledge is too narrow, you can antique trug or even a tool box with a handle and move them outside, so they can get their dose of sun and fresh air.
Another practical way to get your greenery out is by transforming an old drinks' trolley into a mobile herb garden. Simply put the pots where the herbs are planted on the trolley and you will be able to easily move them in and out of the kitchen.
