How To Grown Your Own Herb Garden

1. Grow your herbs in pots or planters -that way they can be kept indoors on your windowsill or kitchen. Make sure to pick a container that will allow for water drainage, an important part of the gardening process! The pot should also be optimal for the size of your individual herbs.

2. If you're just starting out, starter plants are the way to go. Seeds can take longer and are more difficult to grow.

3. Potting soil, with its light texture, is better than garden soil because it allows for water drainage.

4. The last step, but most important one for cultivating your garden is remembering to water with love.
