How to: Create a Windowsill Herb Garden

Even if you don’t have a ton of space or a super green thumb, try out these easy steps to spice up your next meal (the DIY way!)

Step 1: Pick your Herbs

Recommendations:

  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Dill
  • Oregano
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Thyme

Support your local floral shops by purchasing seeds and small plants online!


Step 2: CHOOSE A CONTAINER

For proper herb care, be sure containers have drainage holes and waterproof saucers.

STEP 3: PLANT SEEDS

Fill container(s) with potting mix. Use a commercial seed-starting mix, potting soil OR a 50:50 combination of the two.

STEP 4: TAKE PROPER HERB CARE

Place containers in a sunny, south-facing window. A south-facing window is adequate for most herbs, although supplemental fluorescent lights will help in winter.

Water your herbs to keep soil moist but not soggy and always drain saucers after watering.
