Growing Herbs Indoors

The cool temperatures mean that most herb plants, even the perennial type, will die off with the first frost.

Since I love to cook with herbs all year rounds, and don't want to pay for the pricey bubble packs at the grocery store, I like to grow my herbs indoors during the winter.

Since most herbs need a lot of sunlight, a sunny window is a must. These are some of my favorite herbs to grow inside.
If you don't have a lot of light in your home, grow lights will give you what you need for a flourishing herb garden.
Basil is an annual herb that needs a lot of light. Fortunately, it roots easily from cuttings. Snip off a few cuttings before the frost hits and root them in water and then plant in soil.
I use thyme almost every day, so I have a big pot of it growing in my kitchen.
Ir window sill space is limited try growing a few herbs with similar light and soil requirements together. I have one growing on my kitchen counter near a sunny window for easy access. See more ideas for growing herbs indoors on my blog.
