Channel 7: Windowsill Herb Garden

With the cooler weather outside, there are still ways to enjoy gardening and growing plants.  Windowsill herb gardens are a great way to enjoy fresh herbs all winter long (this can save money too!).  Many herbs grow quite easily in containers and require only minimal care.  All you need is a sunny spot and a few small containers to get started.  Plants can be started from seed or from small starter plants.  Kids enjoy their little science “experiment” too!

Herbs that grow successfully inside:

  • Basil
  • Sage
  • Parsely
  • Chives
  • Coriander

Phil will show how easy it is and with very few materials – you can have your own windowsill garden!

Materials needed:

  • Small containers with holes in the bottom (can be dixie cups, empty yogurt containers that the kids paint, etc)
  • Saucers to catch the excess water
  • Soil
  • Small herb plants or seeds
  • Label

Put in a warm, sunny place and water when the soil feels dry to the touch.

Avoid chemicals to culinary plants!
