How To: Make a One-Pot Indoor Herb Garden


How To: Make a One-Pot Indoor Herb Garden


2007_10_29-Herbs.jpg

Basil, thyme, sage. These are indispensable herbs, and they grew in abundance on our front stoop all summer. It's too cold outdoors now, but we don't like paying $2.50 per packet at the supermarket.Fortunately it's not difficult to grow these herbs indoors - even in a tiny kitchen.One big pot, some potting soil, and a few herb plants are all you need. You should also have a sunny spot; the herbs will need plenty of direct sunshine.
