HOW TO GROW GREEN EVEN IN THE COLD OF WINTER

WINDOWSILL HERB GARDEN

The cold, dark winter months are beautiful & blue. I love the frosty chill and snow capped mountains but I also find myself craving green. That's why planting an indoor windowsill garden with starter plants is such a comforting project to dive into. With sufficient sunlight, love, and water, you can cultivate a healing farmacy of your very own in just a few short weeks. 

Tools:

1  15’’ x 6’’ x 4’’ Planter Box

Cilantro, Sage, Thyme & Basil Starter Plants

Organic Potting Soil Mix

Rocks

Steps:

  1. Layer the base of your planter box with rocks. This will help with drainage and provide a strong foundation for potting soil mix.

  2. Fill planting box with potting soil. Make sure to leave a little space between the surface of the potting mix and the side of the box.

  3. Plant herb starter plants per the instructions on the packet. 

  4. Water thoroughly after planting. With regular sun and water, you should see leaves unfurling in just a few weeks!
