Create an Herb Garden on Your Windowsill


Herbs: basil, scallion

An herb garden will save you a lot of money over the years, and will provide you with healthy seasonings for your meals. A windowsill herb garden can be grown year round. If your pantry has a window, use that. If not, choose another window or two within the home. A table set in front of any window will hold pots of herbs.

When creating your windowsill garden, keep in mind that:

  1. Environmentally friendly/ low or no toxin pots can be found to start an organic garden.

  2. Organic potting soil is also available.

  3. Organic, heirloom seeds are not much more expensive than others.

  4. The pots you use, as well as the soil and the seeds, will indicate how healthy your herbs will be.

  5. You can dry herbs at home easily and stored in your pantry.

 NOTE: The herbs you grow organically will be far more affordable than the herbs you purchase at the store.

 ACTION STEPS:

  1. Research the pots, soil and seeds you wish to use.

  2. Order what you need.

  3. Set up an area for your windowsill garden.

  4. Happy planting!
