Indoor herb garden
Do you want herbs year-round? Plant an indoor, winter, herb garden.
Select a container that will hold several plants and provides good drainage. Clay, wood or ceramic pots work well. Or, use multiple containers, each with a different kind or herb. If you have herbs in your garden, fall is a great time to divide them.
Tender perennials such as bay, rosemary, pineapple sage and others will be killed by a hard frost. These are best grown in pots year round. Bring plants indoors prior to frost and set them where they will get maximum sunlight to encourage growth. You can enjoy fresh herbs throughout the winter.
