Garden Media GroupWinter is right around the corner, which means for many, it’s time to prepare for the cold and put the garden to bed. Even though the outdoor garden is dormant, there is still a world of opportunity to grow indoors. Flavors of summer are one step away when you grow herbs on your kitchen counter.

You don’t need a yard to cultivate a garden — you can have it all indoors.

To savor the flavor of summer, all you need to do is, find a space indoors, choose your growing medium – soil, coco coir, sand, gravel or water – and begin growing your favorite herbs.

Almost any plant can be grown indoors, as long as the growing environment is suited to the plant’s needs. Traditional soil can be traded for water and other soil-less mixes.

And you’re not limited to herbs that love cold weather. Common herbs such as dill, parsley and rosemary thrive under grow lights and can provide flavorful flair all year long. Other easy to grow herbs include basil, mint, oregano, chives, thyme, and cilantro.

Starting an indoor fall herb garden is simple. Maintaining a healthy growing environment is the key to success.
