Growing vertical herb gardens indoor is probably one of the most interesting ideas that can always turn into something useful for your daily life. The vertical garden makes a perfectly solution for you who are short on space, while growing herbs can add visual appeal in the room, especially kitchen, you can also use as ingredients for cooking ritual.
It is always important to pick the varieties of herbs to grow for vertical herb garden in your kitchen wisely. Some herbs can deal with indoor climes better than others. It’s important to note if you wish to grow herbs all year. Sub-shrubs, such as lavender and rosemary, and tougher herbs like oregano, thyme, chives, and parsley are suitable for overwintering. A delicate herb such as basil will never survive winter, but it can be grown from seed easily. Tarragon, cilantro, and sage can be repotted; harvest the remains when winter comes and start over indoors.
Humidity turns out the biggest concern for indoor garden. It’s especially true in modern houses that are sealed off from elements so the airy is too dry to sustain the growth of herbs. Don’t put your vertical garden near heat vents and radiators. Keep it out of direct sunlight too. You can create a humid zone by setting the potted plants on top of pebble stones filling trays with water.
Remember the outdoor soil tends to be heavier than a good potting mix if you replant herbs you already you have in garden. This can interfere with pot drainage, leading to fatal buildup when you use smaller pots. The trick is taking up as little root ball as possible and the replant in a lightweight potting mix that is designed for indoor use. Therefore, you can optimize your indoor vertical herb garden, ensuring the herb plants can grow well.
