Herb Savvy: What to Get Going On Your Windowsill

Herb Savvy: What to Get Going On Your Windowsill

Good news for you who love to cook and have a sunny spare windowsill in your home.  These inexpensive, ultra-versatile herbs will flourish in the sunniest of spots providing you with an ongoing supply of fresh herbs, since we all know the ones we grow ourselves taste oh-so-much-better than store bought, no? Plus, it's cheaper to snip off what you need as you need it than blowing a wad on a giant bunch that'll go bad three days later. So, start growing and enjoy the fruits of your pain-free labor. 

Herbs You Can Grow on a Sunny Windowsill:

  • Basil
  •  Rosemary
  •  Thyme
  •  Parsley
  •  Sage
  •  Tarragon

For apartment dwellers without a spot of sun in sight, fear not.  There is an alternative, but it comes with a price tag.  The AeroGarden is a fool-proof (it's actually guaranteed) way to grow your own herbs indoors in the darkest of corners.  Cost: $80+ available here.

Savvy Scoop: Depending on how long your direct sunlight is, you can even start from uber-budget-savvy seeds. Cost: $1
