  • PAllenSmith says:

    Basil actually prefers direct sunlight, and a lot of it!

  • PAllenSmith says:

    Well, it depends on the soil drainage and heat outside, but I water mine every couple of days.

    Hi, I would like to know what’s the best soil to use for herbs or what would you personally recommend? Also, how to determine a good soil drainage. I live in Singapore, it’s all-round summer here! Currently, I’m starting on my first plotted herb, basil :) Excited to expand to more herbs in the future!

  • PAllenSmith says:

    I recommend a designated “potting” soil- my favorite is BlackGold potting soil- and a good drainage cant be seen when your soil stays moist for about a day, but doesnt HOLD water. Good luck with your potted basil!

    This is excellent! Me and my partner are just about to move into our first home together, with our young daughter. We do have a limited garden space, so I am going all organic an shall be growing our own produce so my Daughter has the best possible start. I would also like to have fresh herbs growing in our kitchen not just for consumption, but for aroma and decor. Do you think I should go out an buy herbs from te garden centre, then re-pot and grow them? All year around? I leave subscribed also

    Where can I find herbs now that it’s fall? Are they available in seed form from a garden center? Would basil, cilantro and oregano make it indoors? That’s mainly what I cook with….

  • Shawn Merrill says:

    That’s very cool to know P. Allen. Herbs are very healthy and tasty additions.

  • Hooman Nazarian says:

    im a chef, and indoor herb gardens will help you eat better and healthier, but also make you change the way you think about our kitchens. everyone has a busy life. why not right?

  • Sara Aurora van der Meeren says:

    For herbs that require a lot of sunshine… what if you live in a city that is know for it’s rain? It rains here almost all the time, and there are very few days with sunlight… Anything i can do? Can the natural light (even though it’s clouded and grey outside) also keep the herb healthy and growing?

    Anyway, thank you for this tutorial. I’ve had trouble keeping my plants alive, but then again, i never really sat down like now and tried to figure out how to keep them healthy and alive xP

  • frazel5 says:

    your herbs are weird…that’s not how it’s pronounced…

  • frazel5 says:

    I would try a grow light if you think your herbs are getting too little sun. They’re not as expensive as you might think.
