Growing Herbs - Your Indoor Herb Garden Ideas

We believe that gardening is good for our souls, well being and certainly our stress level!
Garden Plant imageA perfect way to get the taste of summer is by growing herbs indoors during the cold months. Most people don’t realize just how easy it is to have your own kitchen herb garden. It doesn’t matter if you decide to start your garden from scratch or from a handy herb garden kit, you’ll find everything you need to know here.
You also can save money on your grocery bill without compromising on flavor by growing your own herbs indoors during the winter. Mediterranean herbs like rosemary, thyme, parsley, oregano and marjoram have a reputation for being hard to grow indoors—but it's easy to keep these delicious culinary herbs alive all winter long if you give them the right amount of light, water and humidity.

Now, more than ever before, people are beginning to realize that good health does not refer to an absence of disease. Rather, it is a balance of physical, mental, emotional and social wellness. Herbal health care is becoming increasingly popular because herbs provide natural stimulants that activate the body's own defence mechanisms.

Due to our sedentary lifestyle, processed foods and industrial advances, we have managed to discover a large number of chronic illnesses that were virtually unknown in the past. Medicines used to treat these diseases have side effects. In time, these medicines also become ineffective as the human body develops a resistance to the medicine. After battling it out for many years, practitioners of conventional medicine are finally willing to admit that herbs (medicinal, tea and even cooking) are an effective source of healing.

Today, consumers are turning to herbs for increased health and vitality, as well as for more domesticated duties such as decorating and cooking. Growing herbs can be an easy process and the results can be used to add flavor to meals, make soothing and relaxing herbal teas or for making fragrant sachets, potpourri, scented candles and oils.

Herbs from the home garden provide the path to a slower pace of life. What could be more relaxing than a sweetly scented cup of herbal tea. A warm cup of lemon balm tea can make life's troubles vanish, a tall tumbler of an iced peppermint infusion will take the heat out of the fieriest summer day. A sprig of lemon verbena thrown into the teapot with your favorite tea will bring a smile to the faces. Herbal teas can be simple, consisting of one type of herb, or a more complex blend of flavors with many different combinations of tea herbs.

Within this blog, you will find information about growing herbs in the garden and indoor herb gardening, as well as information about growing medicinal herbs.

Lots of people still don't understand that most medicines are made from herbs. Herbs taste good, cost less, are natural, and easy to grow. Natural means for healing.

We grow herbs in the summer garden and have on occasion grew dill and basil indoors, but we them mainly for culinary purposes. I think herbs are important, but what's needed is something that shows home growers how to use their herbs for more than just cooking. I couldn't go out, dig up a purple cone flower and know how to use the roots to help a sore throat. I know how to grow herbs, I just don't know how to use them medicinally.

I love gardening - indoor and out. Right now there is some catnip on the winddowsill to keep my cat boys happy. There's always something growing indoor and out. Beautiful blog.

Wow, great post with good information.
For the last 4 or 5 years we have been growing a herb garden ourself and I have really enjoyed growing, harvesting and making useful of the herbs. We bring a lot of our plants in for the winter so we don't lose them to the cold.
Have a great week!

Growing Herbs in my own garden is a great and healthy idea, better food too than in the grocery stores...

Clara said...

If nothing else grow some on your window sill. There's nothing like being able to pinch off some fresh herbs and throw them in the pot while cooking.

Growing herb container gardens is easy. Grow herbs started from containers so they can be set in the garden without disturbing the roots. Herbs as a group are relatively easy to grow.

Gardening is like therapy. Thank goodness herbs grow relatively easily and make such a difference in cooking. Nothing like fresh Thai basil in your pho.

Hello,
Would you object to my using some of your articles on a new herb gardening site that I'm planning, maybe about one every three or four weeks to mix in with other content. I would, of course include a link back to your site?
With regards,

ps. I should have said that it will be a .uk site, not .com
