I love fresh herbs and grow quite a few.

What can I do to keep them growing in the winter?

  • It might be too cold where you live. Time to move them indoors. You can set in a sunny south facing window or get grow lights.

    I don't know where you live, but here in Minnesota you bring in your pots and put them under a grow light. They need more light than a window can give them unless they get direct sunlight for about eight hours. Remember that indoors they will have different moisture needs than outside due to the dry heat in the house. If you fertilize them outside, you can continue to do so inside, but give them an adjustment period as they may go dormant for a little while to adjust to the move and you don't want to burn the roots.

    If they are in the house, then leave them in a sunny window. Water only as often as the soil is dry an inch from the top. If you are leaving them outside, they should be sheltered from the worst winds and rain, yet still get sunshine. When really bad or freezing weather is expected, you need to cover them inexpensive material like an old tarp, a bedsheet or drop cloth. A deep freeze could kill all of your herbs, but they are like weeds—they often bounce back. 😇

    Some herbs are hard to grow in the home but good light and not too much water is the key to the survival of many household plants.
