Wouldn’t it be convenient to have healthy, fresh herbs all year round? With limited space in your apartment, you can squeeze in some potted herbs preferably near the windows where the plants can get enough light intensity. Guess what? You can even place them inside the kitchen. Cooking has never been more convenient!
Cover basil seeds or starter plants lightly with a smooth potting mixture. The container must have drainage holes and must be at least 4 inches wide. Basil does well in a warm place with access to high light intensity. Water regularly especially when the temperatures are hot. There are a number of varieties each with different characteristics, taste, and health benefits.
Spicy Globe is ideal for plucking due to its compact growth. For aromas and flavors, go for Siam Queen, Genovese, and lemon. All varieties are ideal for snipping because the mother-plants have the ability to sprout leaves and suckers.
Basil has anti-inflammatory properties due to its high Eugenol content. This oil has enzymes that hinder unnecessary swelling of cells and muscles.
For best results, ensure that you start it directly from seed. The main disadvantage is that it does not sprout after it is harvested for the first time. On the brighter side, it grows quickly. It yields high amounts of carotenoids which are a great source of vitamin A. To ensure that you enjoy their citrus flavor all year round, plant three different pots at different times. They require high light intensity and frequent watering.
Spearmints and peppermints were made for pots. Mints can be quite aggressive and are therefore not ideal for pairing with other herbs in the same pot. They are good for digestion. Mint tea is also ideal for hangovers. Only snip some leaves from each plant. Regular watering and high light intensity is necessary for best results.
This plant will give your kitchen an angelic, flesh scent. It is ideal for a weight loss diet because it is rich in antioxidants. The scent has been proven to irritate house flies.
Chives are among the top recommendations by nutritionists. They are rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Antioxidants. Cover the seeds with a very light layer of soil. Ensure that the soil does not dry out completely.
