Fresh herbs are great but somewhat hard to come by in the winter. Not being able to have the whole herb garden indoors you will need to prioritize what you want to grow indoors. Some of my favorites are Basil because of how many different dishes you can use it in as well as Parsley and Thyme, I also like to add some Mint when I grow indoors in the winter to add some extra flavor to drinks like Hot Coco.
There are a few ways you can grow indoors during the winter.
- Transplanting a few cuttings from your outside garden into pots for inside is a great way to start, this allows you to start one step ahead of just new potting’s, you will want to make sure you water them often as well as give them plenty of natural light.
- Hydroponics, are great for small spaces and don’t need natural light with some of the ones available online you can also get different sized ones depending on how much room you want to allocate.
- If you have a lot of room you can make your own potting area and use grow lights to allow you to maintain so great herbs during the winter.
Fresh herbs make all the difference in cooking and its always a struggle in the winter but the best thing to do is just try something till you find what works best for your home and conditions.
