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.
