Growing an Indoor Herb garden

Let’s face it, you know what a difference it makes when fresh herbs are used in cooking.  So with spring coming, why not invite some guests over for a stylish dinner party and have them feel spoiled by preparing a yummy dish prepared with savoury herbs on a beautiful sunny day!  If you have even a bit of a green thumb, the best way to always have fresh herbs on hand is to set up your own herb garden.

All you need are a few small jars or a window box and a sunny spot for it in or near your kitchen.  Find seedlings or seeds at a nursery or even the local grocer.

Favourite herbs to grow yourself are: parsley, sage, thyme, chives, dill, mint, basil, rosemary.  Keep the soil moist, add fertilizer and watch your herbs grow!  Then take those herbs to the kitchen – your dinner guests will thank you!
