Indoor Herb Gardens

by candy47

Ideal for small living spaces or limited outdoor planting areas, indoor herb gardens will provide freshly picked herbs all year round.

Freezing winters, limited outdoor space and living in an apartment building are just a few reasons to consider growing herbs indoors. You don't need to have a green thumb to grow some of the basic herbs used in everyday cooking, and with these kits shown below you'll have fresh herbs within a few weeks and they will grow year-round. Grow them on the kitchen window sill or in any room where there's full sun. Plenty of sunlight is the key to a successful indoor herb garden.

Thank you frankbeswick, I hope Mira sees your comment!

Peat alone is insufficient for herbs, as it is low in nutrients, but what you get in the Growum will be peat with added nutrients.

Mira, my knowledgeable gardening friends tell me the 'magic soil' is peat. It's an accumulation of vegetation and organic matter widely used in plant starter kits. I hope that helps!

What kind of soil is that in Growums? It looks like real soil but it grows out of that sponge-like thing.
