Even if you don’t have any experience in planting and growing herbs and you have limited space, growing your own herbs is an excellent way to bring nature into your home. Oregano, basil, rosemary, parsley and mint can be kept and grown in closed rooms. Choose your favorite herbs and next time you’re cooking, you’ll be having fresh herbs that will make your meal taste delicious. You need to have a room that has a lot of day light, at least 5 hours a day. Most herbs are Mediterranean and that’s why they need lots of light to grow.
How to Plant Your Herbs
You can grow your herbs from seeds or you can use bedding plants. If you decide to use bedding plants, make sure the pot has holes on the bottom so your herb won’t die. Put a place under the pot that’s going to hold the excess water. Choose a pot deep enough for your herb to grow. The ideal depth is around 12 cm. Put 5-8cm soil and gently place the herb. Leave 2-3 cm space from the soil to the top of the pot so you have enough space to water your herb.
If you decide to plant a herb from a seed, follow the instructions on the packaging.

Basil can be easily planted from a seed. It needs lots of sun and warm temperatures to grow. Basel must be watered 1-2 a week because it’s really sensitive to cold. You can pick your basil 6 weeks after it’s planted.
Oregano can be easily planted from a seed. It needs lots of sun light and it should be kept somewhere dry.
Rosemary can take a few years to grow and that’s why it’s easier to plant one from a bedding plant. It needs moist soil and lots of sunlight.
