Indoor Miniature Gardening with Herbs


 
Home Improvement
Growing an indoor herb garden is an efficient and rewarding way to grow fresh herbs. You can well manage the herb plants when they are right on your windowsill. Planting a windowsill herb garden offers a great way to grow an easy miniature indoor garden. Most of the edible herbs are easy to grow indoors and make it simple to pick from the garden year round. Herbs make our dishes so delicious, savory and often times beautifully presented. A glance at the greenery in the balcony of your home can be a favorite moment to people who are passing through.

Basic steps involved in growing a miniature herb garden • Choose plants carefully > Small-leaved herb varieties make a good option for miniature gardens as they do their best indoors. > You can start your herb garden from starter plants or seeds. Going with dwarf varieties provide a better fit for a smaller growing space. > While choosing the plants check for specifics for each plant such as planting depth, light and water needs. > Consider keeping invasive herbs growing separately so as not to overcrowd the others.

• Type of soil > Soil is one of the most important aspect of growing herbs indoors. > Use a good drainage potting soil which is lighter, sterilized to stop weeds from germinating and contains peat moss that helps to loosen up the soil.

• Provide plenty of light > Along with regular fertilization, most herbs grow best in a sunny location such as a clear southern window.

• Ensure air-circulation and cool conditions > Herbs need to have proper airflow to keep the pests and bacteria at bay. Make sure that the air is moving in the room where the herb garden is placed. > Herbs should be placed in cool conditions even in winter. > Herbs that are grown in stuffy and warm locations attract pests such as insects and mealy bugs.

• Watch watering > Indoor herb gardens requires careful attention to watering. No matter if your herb likes drier conditions or extra moisture, a plant sitting in water is never good. > Avoid over watering your herb garden or letting the pots sit in water trays, as damp soil may quickly lead to root rot. > Make sure that you choose the containers with good drains. If you have sealed pots, place rocks at the base and add some vermiculite into the soil to aid in drainage.

• Rotate often > Spindling and weak growth are the common problems with indoor herbs. > Ensure to rotate the plants at least once in a week so that they may grow strong and straight by receiving equal amounts of light on all sides.

• Fertilize monthly > Herbs can be grown healthy and strong by nourishing them on a consistent basis with well balanced liquid fertilizer.

• Keep a close eye on your plants for pests > To prevent pests from destroying your garden, keep a close eye on the plants and use a soapy spray at the sight of infestation. > Pick out any pests you see and provide sticky traps to curb the rest. > Harmful pests may damage the health of the plants, so its better to have an idea about the pests.

• Prune regularly > Herbs require frequent pruning for them to stay healthy and bushy. The more the herbs are pinched, the more they will grow.

Herbs grow well indoors if you keep in mind the above steps while growing a herb garden. The efficiency of the herb garden depends on the location you have chosen.
