All About Gardening
Choosing the right spot may vary, but make sure to give your herbs at least 6 hours of sun each day.
Most herbs thrive at room temperatures around 70°F. However, windows often have a “microclimate” that is hotter or colder than the rest of the house.
The best herb varieties for windowsill kitchen gardens are compact and fast-growing.
These plants are rooted in smaller containers with less drainage than outdoor soil, making them vulnerable to root rot.
Most successful indoor herbs are grown in separate pots. This allows you to cater to the specific needs of each plant.
Drainage is a crucial theme for indoor container gardening. Without proper drainage, plant roots suffocate.
