Live Herb Plants: Buying & Care Guide

Invite more color and flavor into your home with fresh herbs! Used for thousands of years for their taste and medicinal properties, live potted herbs can be the perfect addition to your indoor or patio kitchen garden.

Herb plants come in a wide range of varieties, making them a versatile and beautiful choice. Pick the flavors you love and grow your own kitchen herbs, using them in salads, meals, teas, or cocktails.

Apart from their culinary value, herbs are prized for their medicinal qualities. Brewed as teas, they strengthen the immune system and often have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. The essential oils contained in some fresh herb plants act as a natural insect repellent, helping to keep your garden pest-free. You can also grow herb plants like Oregano or Sage for cooking or make homemade tinctures and oils for aromatherapy.

How to Care for Herbs: Growing and Maintenance Tips

If you wonder how to take care of herbs to keep them thriving, just follow the tips below:

Light, Temperature, and Humidity

Provide 6 to 8 hours of bright sunlight for your indoor kitchen herb garden. Most herbs are adaptable and resilient. They grow in many hardy zones (4-11) and can withstand cool temperatures outdoors. Herb plants enjoy average humidity.

Watering and Feeding

One of the most essential aspects of herb plant care is not overwatering these often drought-resistant plants. Always use well-draining soil and pots with drainage holes for your kitchen herb plants. Most herbs like moist but never soggy soil. Because they’re edible plants, feed them only with organic fertilizers or compost.

Pruning and Repotting

To keep your plant bushy, cut the leaves you’ll use for cooking evenly. Prune any dead or wilting stems. After flowering, trim off 1-2 inches of the branches to promote new growth. 

Most herb plants for sale online come in pots and are perfect for container gardening indoors. But you can also repot your herbs into a garden container or bed and create a gorgeous outdoor kitchen garden. 

Common Issues and How to Fix Them

Check the moisture levels and use well-draining soil to avoid overwatering your potted herbs. Brown tips indicate overexposure to light or low humidity; mist your herbs or group them to boost air moisture around your culinary plants. 

Wilting or faded-looking leaves indicate insufficient light exposure; move your plants to a sunnier spot. Check your plants regularly for insects, and use only organic insecticides if necessary.
