How to Grow Herbs Indoors
Growing herbs is a great way to ease into growing your own garden. TERRA carries a wide range of herbs that are simple to grow at home, whether you have a sprawling property or live in a tiny apartment. Some of the herbs that are the easiest to grow include:
These herbs are full of flavour and can easily bring any dish you make to life.
To get started, you need a container like a window box or clay pot, some healthy soil, TERRA’s high-quality seeds for the types of herbs you want to grow, water, and a little TLC. Setting up your herb garden is quick and easy with the following steps:• Plant your seeds several inches below the soil and water them right away. Herbs don't need direct sunlight, so they're ideal for growing inside.
• Keep the soil moist by watering every couple of days, and you'll soon see your herbs sprouting.
• They grow quickly so it won't be long before you can trim them and enjoy them in salads and cooking.
How to Grow Vegetables Indoors
Many people are intimidated by growing their own vegetables, but there are many types that are easy to grow and maintain, even without a green thumb. Try your hand at creating your own vegetable medley by planting:
These plants are indoor-friendly and are among the easiest vegetables to grow. Tomatoes, peppers, beans should be planted in the sunniest area of your home, while vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, kale and chard are vegetables that grow in the shade. Potatoes, carrots and radishes require partial sun.
You don’t need to be an expert on how to grow vegetables to get started. A trip to your TERRA Greenhouses will get you set up with all the supplies you need, including:
- Gardening containers (planter boxes)
- Good-quality soil
- Small trowel to dig with
- Pair of gardening gloves
Once you fill your pots with soil, simply plant your seeds, give them a good watering, and keep the soil moist every few days. Following the directions on the seed packets will give you an easy guide to follow for whatever varieties of vegetables you've chosen, and a TERRA garden expert can answer any of the questions you have along the way.
