Window Sill or Table Top Herb Garden start one now and enjoy Fresh Herbs for your recipes.
This Herb Container Garden is an easy convenient way to have fresh herbs on hand whenever you want them for your cooking.
Your herbs will need the full sun for best performance.
Bring On The Sun
Place your container where they will receive at least eight hours of direct sun.
If you have to grow your indoor herbs inside, find the sunniest location you can find, but don’t expect them to perform as well as they do outside.
I had an old galvanized bucket that was perfect for this project.
So I grabbed it and got to work on my herb garden.
Keep The Feet Dry
The bottom already had a rusted out spot so that was perfect 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 you do not need to fertilize.
Next I placed rocks and a broken pottery piece in the bottom to create water flow to the roots.
Pick Your Herbs
I used 3 different herbs.
They are cilantro, curly parsley x 2 and rosemary x 2.
The rosemary likes it dryer than the parsley but they will get along alright in the same container.
I used a good potting soil and planted each plant in the bucket.
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.

Remember you need to check the bucket everyday to see if it needs water.
Use your herbs, this keeps them pinched back and makes them grow fuller.
