Growing Herbs Indoors

From Natural News:
If you like to cook, then you can appreciate the value of having your very own herb garden. Imagine being able to pick fresh herbs when you need them – free – instead of needing to periodically get your stash from your local grocery. The good news is that getting started isn’t difficult. You won’t even need any outdoor space at all. Here are some herbs you can grow indoors:


Laurus nobilis is known for its leaves that have been used since ancient times. It is used in Italian cuisine, as well as a number of cuisines in Asia. It has plenty of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties. It can also protect your heart from disease. Bay is a perennial that is best grown in pots. If you must grow it indoors, make sure to place it close to a window that faces either east or west. Be sure it has plenty of space to itself. This will give the plant the sunlight and air it needs to become healthy.


This herb is a mainstay in many Mediterranean and Asian dishes. Apart from imparting a distinct aroma and flavor to any food it is added to, it has a rich antioxidant and nutritional content that offers a lot of benefits for your health, too. Basil is best planted from seeds and because it likes the sun, will benefit from being placed close to a south-facing window. (Read more.)
