Indoor Herb Garden Ideas

Indoor Herb Garden Kit - Stack-n-Grow
Indoor Herb Garden Kit – Stack-n-Grow

There are many indoor herb garden kits available nowadays. But here are some new indoor herb garden ideas that really provide value for the money.  This is one that I’ve found to be very practical for me here in Colorado.  Check out the other indoor herb garden ideas below!





If you do any baking or cooking at all, you will find recipes calling for “two tablespoons of fresh, snipped chives,” or “1/4 cup of fresh dill.”  And so you go to the cupboard, find the 12-year-old tin of chives that fell behind the sugar bowl the last time you had baked potatoes, and you cross your fingers and sprinkle.  Amirite?

Of course I am.  But it really doesn’t have to be that way.  Growing herbs is about the easiest thing in the world.  Even I can do it . . . and Dwaine is always commenting on my “brown thumb.”

Here in Colorado, the growing season is just too short to really benefit from an outdoor herb garden.  You just get things producing then BOOM!  You get your first snowstorm and everything dies.  I didn’t even bother for a number of years.  But the thing that turned it around for me was this handy device:

I have my planter down in the basement under a small grow-light, and it works perfectly.  When I need fresh herbs, I just go down, snip off a few and I’m in business.

This particular planter doesn’t come with seeds or the Jiffy pots and grow dome, but you can order all that separately if you want.  I didn’t plant all the seeds, as I rarely use some of them, but they’re available.  Once you have the planter going, the plants provide plenty of herbs for you to dry, if you want.  I find they get too “leggy” if I’m not pruning them off occasionally, so I dry out the pruned leaves and save them in small, labeled jars.

With an indoor garden like this, you can enjoy the flavor of fresh herbs anytime, which just can’t be beat.

This company also offers small greenhouse/grow light combos – perfect for a small house or apartment:

And how about growing your own mushrooms?

Another fun product they offer (which I haven’t tried yet, but am terribly curious to see it) is mushroom growing kits.  They have a huge selection, from shiitake to pearl oyster to enokitake to turkey tail and more!  The mushroom patch kit will produce fresh shiitakes for about 16 weeks, with regular harvests at about 2 week intervals. Kit includes humidity tent, detailed instructions and mycelium infused substrate (sawdust and wood chips).  Even here in Denver I can’t always find fresh mushrooms (apart from the ubiquitous buttons).  So a kit like this could be a lot of fun.

 So stop with the ancient, mummified chives and get growing!  You won’t regret it.

  1. So, I started a liltte herb garden about three or four months ago, mainly as a liltte project for my toddlers to participate in and never really believed that it would go anywhere, well i just came back after a month vacation and everything looks amazing! But I do have a few question, I planted three different basils and they are almost waist high, do I have to cut them or can I leave them growing at leisure? I prefer fresh herbs in my cooking, so drying them is not ideal. (though I would if the alternative is worse).Also, my peppermint is growing a bit wild, several thick stems have sprouted, stayed close to the ground and surfaced all over the liltte garden, Should I cut these runaways?The sage is a liltte crazy too, big and bushy but kind of all over the place Last question, I swear, I also planted some lemongrass and some scallions (spring onion?), I know these aren’t exactly herbs, so is that going to pose a problem? The lemongrass seems to be thriving, but the scallions look a bit wilted (let’s be honest, very wilted, all of the 3 separate scallions I planted are either bent in half, or completely laying on the ground) I know it’s a million questions, any help is appreciated!!!!I actually live in Londrina, Brazil. It is very hot here and rather dry, although quite a bit of rain in the summer months, the winters are mild here, think Florida, only a couple of weeks in the high 30 s low 40 s range. The soil is considered some of the best in Brazil, very rich with a distinct deep red hue, I am not actually from here, just moved really, but so I’ve heard.

    1. When your basil plant has 3 to 5 sets of leaves, cut the top off just above the second set of leaves from the ground. The single stalk will now end here, and two new branches will now bud and grow from the set of leaves you left behind.

      Peppermint will go crazy, so if you don’t want it to, you need to keep cutting it back. I actually kinda liked it just as a plant, so I didn’t mind.

      Sage – yes, will grow like mad. It especially likes DRY soil. Basil likes it WET.

      I’ll bet your scallions got mold. Very common in wet, high humus soil like you describe. It needs a sandier loam.

      How did your chives do? They are related to scallions and onions.
