    herbs being grown indoors

    Have you ever thought about setting up an indoor garden at the apartments in Alameda? It’s a great way to add some green to your space (which we all know can improve air quality and brighten your mood). Beyond those mood-enhancing effects, though, having your own indoor garden can be a practical way to ensure you have plentiful amounts of the herbs you love to use in cooking and other day-to-day activities. The trick, however, is finding the right herbs to plant that you can grow regardless of what time of year it is, which is where we’re coming to lend a hand. Today, we’re going to fill you in on some awesome herbs that you can try your hand at growing no matter what month the calendar is currently showing.

    The Best Herbs For Your Indoor Garden

    So you’re ready to grow herbs indoors? Before we get to our list, make sure you remember some of the general pointers on making sure your herbs are able to grow properly. You’ll want to make sure they have ample sunlight, are placed in pots that have good drainage, and that you feed and water them regularly so they have all the nutrients they need.

    As for specific herbs you should concentrate on, there are few better choices out there than basil. This tender little plant is one you’ll find used in cuisine across the world (so it’ll find a home in just about any kind of dish you can imagine). Beyond that, though, it’s got some medicinal properties that you’ll likely find of use, so plant plenty of it and expect to get some use out of it!

    Next up on our rundown, why not try some oregano? It’s a member of the same family as basil, and as a perennial plant, you’ll have plenty of chances to make sure it grows big and strong. Once again, there are a variety of dishes that you can try this herb in, and it also has other practical purposes, such as treating infections and helping repel insects.

    The list of herbs goes far beyond these two standouts, mind you, and if you’ve got the room, you’ve got plenty of others to pick from, like:

    • Chervil
    • Chives
    • Rosemary
    • Parsley
    • Sage
    • Thyme
    • Cilantro
    • Dill

    These easy starters should be more than enough for your initial foray into indoor herb-growing. Once you’ve mastered these, start to expand your horizons, and see what else you might be able to grow in your new garden space!
