Its a great pleasure growing herbs at home. Even if we are living in the city without a garden, its no problem, herbs can successfully be grown in containers on the window-ledge. Growing your own herbs is a wonderful way to connect with nature giving us healthier air, better quality food and tee and an overall in tune and aligned life.
Final thoughts... Rain water, pond water and river water is much better quality than tap water for all indoor and outdoor plants. If anyone is living in the city and its not possible to collect rain water, let the tap water stand in open bottles for a minimum of 24 hours before watering the plants which gives time for the heavy elements such as chlorine, and limestone which blocks plants veins to evaporate. Try to position the herbs in the sun preferably south or west facing. The plants will produce more foliage the more hours of sunlight the plants can obtain.
Give it a try, plant your seeds and watch them grow, they bring much enjoyment, great tastes and an overall feeling of success.
