Growing culinary herbs indoors is an easy and inexpensive way to enjoy their fresh taste year-round.

  • Light – Six hours of direct, bright light or 12-14 hours of artificial light is the first requirement.
  • Water – Watering will vary by herb, so check the plant tag and be sure to use plant containers with drainage holes.
  • Fertilizer – A liquid houseplant food at half the recommended rate will keep indoor herbs vigorous.
  • Trimming – Regular pruning of the tips, for seasoning meals or just to keep things tidy, will also encourage dense, healthy growth.
