Window Herb Gardens Add Color and Flavor To Any Window

Growing your own herbs can be fun, rewarding and it can save you a lot of money. Any professional chef or even part time, for fun chefs can tell you that the most costly ingredients in any dish are the herbs. Even though you’ll only use a pinch of this herb or a dash of that herb, buying the entire container of herbs adds up to one hefty grocery bill. That’s why many people choose to grow their own herbs. Not everyone has the luxury of having a plot of land in order to grow regular herbs, Chinese herbs or any other types of herbs, so many have to resort to growing them right in their windows.

Window herb gardens require only a pot to put the herbs in, of course the seeds, some fertilizer or just plain dirt, some water and a lot of love and attention. Herbs aren’t very difficult to grow. As long as you pay attention to them and give them lots of water when they look a little dry, and you put them in a window that gets a lot of sunshine, you’ll soon see that your herbs will grow big and strong without you really needing to do anything at all.
