Growing herbs is easy! All you need is a sunny window and regular watering! The seeds you planted will germinate in one to two weeks and begin growing rapidly.
Place your herb container in a sunny window. The more sun the better. Plants use sunlight, air and water to make food in a process called “photosynthesis”.
Keep the soil in your pot moist by watering a little every day or so. Don’t overwater don’t let the soil dry out.
After a few months your garden my outgrow it’s pot. Just gently transfer the plant including roots and soil to a new larger pot.
After a few weeks you herbs will be ready to use in the kitchen. Gently pick a few leaves at a time and include in your favorite recipes.
