Growing Herbs Indoors… Do’s and Don’ts 

 — Do pick a location in your space with ample lighting. If there aren’t any. Supplemental lighting is a must. Most herbs love bright light all day.. everyday. 

— Do pick a good planter and soil that will fit your herbs and its growth habits! Window sills equals narrow box planters while good floor space will allow for large planters which is great for root production and large growth fast.

— Don’t Over Water. Most herb plant casualties occur because of plants rotting due to overwatering. 

— Don’t allow your herbs to over grow and seed (unless you’re are growing them specifically for the seeds). Harvest your basil and mint frequently to encourage new growth and older leaves are much more bitter anyways when you let it age too long. 

— Don’t put your herbs too close to a range/oven because they are delicate and can easily become stressed with the high fluctuations in temps.
