Do you grow herbs in your kitchen? One of the most effective winter-blues remedies I've tried so far was creating my own window herb garden. There is something so cheerfully wonderful about tons of greenery that spreads the most divine scent around the whole flat. I even have a little lemon balm plant on my work desk and this rosemary plant on our coffee table.
Big plus: you don't have to have a green thumb to be able to keep those goodies fresh and alive. You just need to keep to a few little basics and you are set.
Here are a few tricks I learned from my friend Paul:
- try to start your herb adventure with those four: sage, rosemary, parsley and thyme. They are easier to care for
- always choose organic potting mix
- only water your herbs twice a week under the kitchen tap and only until the water runs out of the draining holes
- try not to wet the leaves
- the best place for herbs is a sunny window spot but not on a direct light.
That is it - easy, right? So, what do you say? Are you planning to start your little herb garden now? xo
P.S: Radiator-shelf plants and here is a brilliant window farm idea that I am dying to try!
