- Indoor herbs grow best on a windowsill that gets some direct light.
- Ninety percent of plant death is due to improper watering. The signs for over watering and under watering often look the same: Plants are wilted, yellow or brown. To determine whether a plant needs water, feel the soil for moisture.
- Herbs are a lot like hair and thrive when trimmed regularly. It is important to trim or harvest before the plant begins to flower.
- Don’t bother treating herbs for insects or fungus, because you should never spray pesticides on herbs. Just keep planting new herbs to rotate in and out.
- Be confident and experiment. Gardening is 50 percent science and 50 percent art. In the right situation with the right gardener, special things can happen.
