Window Sill or Table Top Herb Garden start one now and enjoy Fresh Herbs for your recipes.
Your herbs will need full sun for best performance. Place your containers where they will receive at least eight hours of direct sun. Grow indoor herbs in the sunniest location you can find, but don’t expect them to perform as well as they do outside.
I have an old galvanized bucket that was perfect for this project. I decided to use it for my herb garden. The bottom already had a rusted out spot so I didn’t need to drill holes for drainage. Whatever type of container you decide to use make sure it has really good drainage. Herbs prefer to be on the dry side and do not need fertilize.
Next I placed rocks and a broken pottery piece in the bottom to create water flow to the roots.
I will put a water tray under the bucket while in the house. You can always move the bucket outside once the weather gets warmer, if you like. Just remember you need to check the bucket everyday to see if it needs water. Other herbs that do well in containers are: basil, oregano, sage, thyme just to name a few. Pick your favorites. Also use the herbs this keeps them pinched back and makes them grow fuller. I will keep you posted on how this container garden fairs.
Have you ever had a herb garden container? Do you cook with herbs or would you if you had them handy.
Check out what I am pinning on Pinterest and don’t forget to add this post to your Gardening Board on pinterest. See you there.
Take care and enjoy your day.
