I hope this post finds you well. If you do not know, I grow a lot of herbs. I have been growing herbs for some time indoors and outdoors. I think I have finally got the hang of growing things, although it can sometimes still be a struggle.
I have been taking classes, and finally after about two years, I have found the best herbs that you can grow indoors and wanted to share with you so you can learn to grow your own!
10 Best Herbs 10 Grow Indoors
1. Sage- I normally just buy sage that is already growing. This is called a transplant. It can tolerate indoors, but it definitely needs lots of sun.
2. Chives- I have grown chives from seeds and chives from a transplant. Currently, I have a transplant that continuously grows. Chives are super easy, and those are normally my most successful plants.
3. Basil- Basil was a tough one, because for me it kept going to wood, but you can a basil plant from your local grocery store, and place in a large pot and make sure to trim as often as you can, otherwise, it can flower so easily.
4. Cilantro- I have grown cilantro indoors mostly because if I leave it outside in the hot Georgia sun, it will flower very quickly. My best advice is to buy a transplant if you can find one (early spring) or grow from seed.
5. Oregano- I grow this indoors and out. I took a bit of a cutting and started from there.
6. Parsley – I have two parsley plants, and they are some of my oldest plants. I leave it on my kitchen window sill and it has lasted for almost two years.
7. Rosemary- Again, I used a transplant to grow my rosemary. So far so good as far as it growing, I keep in a window that gets a lot of sun.
8. Thyme- I also buy thyme plants to transplant, and they used to die very quickly, but now they are thriving. I try to have the plants in a western facing window.
9. Bay- I sit this plant by itself, because I read that it cannot be too crowded.
10. Tarragon- I grew this from seed, and I move around from cooler areas of the house, and set in the sun every few days.
I hope this list inspires you to grow your own herbs, so that you can use them for your own recipes. Let me know what kind of herbs you grow indoors!
