Winter Windowsill Herb Garden.

Garden herbs are easy to grow outside and indoors.  Now that winter is here move them indoors so that you have fresh herbs all season long.  Hardy describes most potted herbs.  If you give them the right light, temperature and watering you will have their bright and bold flavors at your fingertips all winter long.

Make sure the potted herbs get at least four to six hours a day of bright sunlight.  A south or east facing window is a must.  Give the soil a good soaking after planting, then water thoroughly only when the soil is dry to the touch.  Depending on the herbs you potted and the container, this could be as often as daily or as spaced out as once a week.
To keep the potted herbs lush and green, feed ever other week with a liquid fertilizer.  Watch for spider mites and aphids.  At first sign spray with a homemade solution of two drops dish soap per quart of water.  While potted herbs grown outside can handle poor soil, this is not true for plants growing inside.  Plant them in the best potting soil mix you can find and afford.  Take your herb garden outdoors, at the end of the season and re-pot in larger containers.
