Fresh herbs are the perfect addition to every meal.
Combining herbs and spices in our meals adds not only flavour but also it increases the meal nutritional value and even provides some medicinal effects like antimicrobial properties and antioxidants.
I highly recommend growing fresh herbs and use them in your cooking
Growing fresh herbs in your kitchen are one of the ways to step up your cooking and even boost your health.
It is also great to experiment with flavours and create amazing recipes easy.
You don’t need a garden to grow herbs, you can grow herbs almost in any kitchen or on your window.
Remember to give them some attention, and your herbs will flourish.
How to grow herbs in your kitchen? In 3 simple steps
- I recommend starting by planting pre-potted herbs that you can find in most supermarkets in the UK.
Remember that the pots needs to have proper drainage so your herbs will not drown. I love the simple Terracotta pots that are heavy and stable and even look great.
- Water your herbs every day.
In summer months it will better to water in the evening.
One technique to water the herbs is to sit the pot on a plate and can pour water into it, and the soil will soak up the water as much it needs.
- Place your herbs in the right spot with lots of light and keep them trimmed regularly.
