This Month’s Tip: Remember Summer. Grow Windowsill Herbs.


Posted by Kristin in Green Tip of the Month

During the dead of winter, wouldn’t it be nice to have a taste of fresh basil or be able to nip off some chives to toss on a potato?

Try growing a few herbs on your windowsill as you await spring.

Here are some basics.

1. Plants, not seeds.  Head to a nursery and pick up some baby herb plants. Ask for staff recommendations about the best soil, pots, and so forth, and for advice specific to your climate.

2. Sun. Find the sunniest spot – preferably on a south-facing windowsill that provides six hours of sun a day — for your pots.

3. Don’t overwater. Check to see if the soil is dry before you water herbs. Don’t add water if the dirt is still moist.
