Herbs List Grown Inside for Winter Season


Aloe Vera: Easy to grow in containers.  Aloe is propagated by offshoots from the mother plant.  Simply remove baby plants (pups) and repot.  This is by far the most commone way to propagage aloe.  The seends from flowers can also be harvested for propagation.

Basil: Start basil from seeds and place the pots in a south-facing window—it likes lots of sun and warmth or use transplants from the nursery.

Bay: Evergreen that grows well in containers all year long. Place the pot in an east, or west, facing window.  Bays need air circulation to remain healthy.

Chervil: Start from seed or transplants.  It grows well in low light but needs 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit temperatures to thrive.

Chives: Plant seed or transplants of onion or garlic chives.  Clumps can be removed from outdoor plantings and put in pots.

Oregan Start with a tip cutting from an outdoor plant. Place the pot in a south-facing window.  It can also be grown from seed or transplants.

Mint:  Use 4 inch stem cuttings and plunge into organic potting soil.  This plant is e xtremely easy to root and grow. Good to use in salads or teas.

Parsley: Start this herb from seeds or dig up a clump from your garden at the end of the season. It likes full sun, but will grow slowly in an east, or west, facing window.

Rosemary: Start with a cutting of rosemary, use organic potting soil for quick healthy rooting. It grows best in a south-facing window.

Sage: Use a stem cutting from an outdoor plant to start the indoor plant. It tolerates dry, indoor air well, but it needs the strong sun it will get in a south-facing window.   It can be also started from seed or nursery transplants.

Thyme: Start indoors either by rooting a soft tip cutting or by digging up and potting an outdoor plant. Thyme likes full sun but will grow in an east, or west, facing window.
