With all the noted benefits of herbs — including stregthening bones, improving the heart’s circulation, and boosting memory — why not try your hand at growing them at home? Watch the video below to see the 10 easiest herb plants to grow.
Indoor herb gardens
If you don’t have a lot of backyard space, or you only want to grow a few herbs, an indoor herb garden could do the trick. Those who have a few extra bucks to spend can spring for fancy self-watering pots, especially if you have a hard time remembering to water the plants.
And if you have an eye for design, there is plenty of inspiration on Pinterest when it comes to beautifully incorporating the pots of herbs into the design of the kitchen — no renovations needed.
Outdoor herb gardens
Is your house situated on a few acres? Why not try adding an outdoor herb garden? Even if you don’t have a ton of yard to work with, outdoorsy folk can still make a garden a reality. Before planting, it’s important to make sure you’ve got the layout mapped out in order to ensure each plant gets its necessary nutrients.
Certain herbs — such as mint— are better suited for growing indoors, while others (like rosemary) thrive outside, so do your research before your tear up your backyard or invest in dozens of pots.
That said, some herbs are particularly hardy, so even if you don’t have the greenest of thumbs, you can still participate. Happy gardening, guys!
