Summers is finally here, but as we’ve already had the longest day of the year! Ho did that happen!, it only feels like we’ve had 4-5 days of any kind of heat.

If like me, you like your herbs to be fresh and vibrant but have a limited space in your garden, why not create an easy window garden?.  Choose the warmest and sunniest area in your house, this doesn’t have to be your kitchen, although obviously this helps with the ‘herbs at hand’ cooking scenario. Get your self a selection of bowls and a regular daily top up of water, and you’re away! Fresh herbs at hand every day.

Variations that will keep easily:

Thai Chilli

Greek Basil

Basil

Mint

Chocolate Mint

Thyme

Rosemary

The slightly harder variations are the dreaded coriander! I love the taste buy I can never get this herb to live freshly for more than two weeks!. Any suggestions? Please leave a comment if you have an idea on how to get this beautiful herb lasting longer.

Happy growing!.

    May I just say, what a fantastic website, I love the clean, fresh look, so good!!! I have never heard of chocolate mint!! Where can I find this? Coriander is tricky to keep alive indoors, one effective tip I read is to not repot the plant as the plant is deeprooted, So keep it in the same one as you bought.

    Hi and thanks for the info, I’ll try leaving this in the container. You can get chocolate mint from most garden centres X

  • I would like to thank you for the efforts you’ve
    put in writing this blog. I really hope to check out the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.

    Amazing blog!
    I am lucky enough to live in a country whereas the ingredients are all top notch quality. Greece. I keep my coriander in a sunny place, outdoors, in a small pot but definitely not the same one as i bought it in. It needs to be moved immediately in a slightly bigger one to have space to grow. Sun and fresh water will give you loads of new!!
    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Amanda,You can grow herbs very easily in cnernioats, and if you have a balcony that really gives you loads more room for a lot more herbs than you’d think! You can grow herbs in pots, and there are also railing planters that hook onto the balcony (sort of like window boxes, but they attach to railings),Anyway, I’m not sure how much sun you actually have. Constant direct sun all day can actually not be best. Full sun is a little different than searing heat all day long. (I’ve given you a website below that will help with all this stuff there’s a site search button, so you can learn about sunlight requirements, as well as how to grow over 20 herbs.).As for herbs that do well in partial shade, you might try chamomile, chives, cilantro, lemon balm, and mint. Most other herbs like more sun, but again, not morning, noon, and afternoons full of strong sun. You’ll be watering a lot, too, if this were the case.Anyway, check out the source below for lots more info. about growing herbs and lots more about container gardening in general.Have fun!Virginia
