Fall is here, which means it’s time to prepare for brisk weather and changing leaves. It’s also time to enjoy pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider and the other delicious flavors we associate with fall. And these wonderful reminders of the season are only one step away when you grow seasonal spices right on your kitchen counter top.
You don’t need a yard to cultivate a garden — you can have it all indoors.
To “pumpkin spice” your home, all you need to do is pick your favorite fall-scented plants, find a space and choose your growing medium; soil, coco coir, sand, gravel or water.
Almost any plant can be grown indoors, as long as the growing environment is suited to the plant’s needs. And you’re not limited to herbs that love cold weather. Common herbs such as dill, parsley and rosemary thrive under grow lights and can provide flavorful flair all year long.
Starting an indoor fall herb garden is simple. Maintaining a healthy growing environment is the key to success. Read these tips from Associa and Sunlight Supply to get started.
