 Growing herbs indoors this winter,  you’ll be rewarded with fresh cooking herbs you grow and harvest yourself. Here are some tips to help you grow healthy herbs indoors. You can grow indoor herbs anywhere they will get enough light, such as a window ledge in the kitchen. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sunlight, such as a south or west facing window. These culinary herbs will do best if they are continuously harvested.
Plan to feed your herbs every two to three weeks with a granular organic fertilizer. An indoor herb garden will provide the flavor and fragrance of fresh herbs all through the winter.
