Herbs are easy and cheap to grow at home.

"Herbs are too expensive to buy at the store."

  • You can plant herbs in small pots and keep them near a window inside your house.

  • Many neighborhoods have community gardens—even in the city.  Does yours?

  • You don't need much space to try planting an herb garden, but you do need sun. Pick a spot that gets at least eight hours of sun each day.

  • Drainage is also important. For this reason, raised beds or containers can be better than placing your seeds or seedlings right into the ground.

  • Some herbs need more water than others. Research the types of herbs you're planting to determine how much water is needed.
