Herbs are a great choice for winter gardening because they can be grown almost anywhere, and they can be kept fresh and fragrant for weeks. These plants do best in a sunny window, although some do well in indirect light. Herbs need plenty of light in order to thrive, so they can also be grown indoors under a grow light. Pots should be slightly damp, but not soggy, and they should be placed in pots with well-draining soil.
Herbs require a temperature range of 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit, so they can survive even in the coldest climates. The ideal temperature for indoor growing is around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Herbs need to be protected from drafts in the house, so make sure the plant’s pot is properly sealed and has a hole for water to drain out. If the container does not contain drainage holes, you may need to repot it.
The best herbs for indoor gardening are those that need plenty of light. They can thrive in large pots but need more room to expand. Small pots will cause the roots to rot and will need to be repotted sooner. Any container with holes will be fine as long as the soil drains well. They also need to be watered frequently, so they need to be replanted regularly.
