10 Indoor Herbs That You Can Grow All Year

As herbs used for daily cooking, it’s great to store them at home. And, one of the best ways to do this is to grow herbs on your own. Some can be grown in DIY planters and hung indoor (or outdoor) while some are planted in the garden. Quick to harvest, they not only help with your cooking but also make your house “greener”. Some even help prevent mosquitoes and ants.

In this post, I’m glad to share 10 indoor herbs that you can grow all year. If you love gardening or prefer homemade foods, just give these a go. You can start your project with seeds or seedling. I prefer seeds as I love the process of growing and harvesting vegetables. It really makes sense. Sometimes, I grow a favorite herb in a nice DIY pot and place it at working desk and coffee table at home.

#1 Basil

You can start growing basil with seeds. It’s best to place your pot in a south-facing window as basil a sun-loving herb.
