Planting Herbs Indoors

We have also included this helpful cheat sheet from Good To Be Home that shows the best herbs for your window sill and those that prefer outdoors.

The good news is that many will adapt indoors or out but this depends on a few things like the soil, temperature and the general hardiness of the herb. You will need to take into consideration the time of the year too.

Herb Planter Kits via Etsy 

Before you start the planting process, the seeds will need to be soaked a couple of hours prior. This cleans them up and they sprout quicker. You’ll also need a decent potting mix, not the regular outdoor soil. You can purchase Herb Planter Kits like above on Etsy. You can also purchase a DIY Mason Jar Kit here.

Here’s how to plant your herbs

  1. Soak your seeds for a few hours before planting.
  2. Fill your pots with a good potting soil mixture.
  3. Plant your seeds three times as deep as the width of the seed. The bigger the seed, the deeper it should go.
  4. Put your pots in front of a south-facing window.
  5. Water when the top of the soil feels dry to the touch.

Here’s some further helpful Herb information from Health Perch that has some excellent tips on what herbs to use to achieve the best flavors in your recipes.

Something else we know that you will find helpful is that you can freeze your herbs in oil so that you have a non-stop supply of fresh herbs all year round.

Harvesting Your Indoor Herbs

It’s important to know the right way to harvest your herbs. Cutting them too much, or in the wrong place can hamper their growing or slow them down. Your herbs will be fully ready when flowers start to bud or when they’re looking wide and bushy.

For harvesting indoor plants, you’ll want to stick to cutting off small quantities of each plant. Be sure to cut 4 to 6 inches above the plant base, leaving the leaves underneath. The plant needs those leaves to feed itself sunlight.
