Overview: Indoor Herb Garden Ideas
Indoor Herb Garden Ideas: Where should you start?
When it comes to visualizing and mapping out how to practically start growing herbs indoors, ask yourself these 3 questions:
1. Will this cause me more stress?
This is a biggie! It really is.
For many of us, clutter or disorganization truly impacts our wellness and mental health and the last thing you want is to embark on this journey with your indoor herb garden ideas and then feel overwhelmed and worse than when you started!
So, ensure that you know that this will be a stress-free journey AND perhaps that it will actually bring you joy or excitement to bring this inside the house!
2. Are there any existing dangers present?
This question is mostly referring to our beloved furry-children in the home. Yes, there are HUNDREDS of toxic herbs and plants to our loved ones, and cats in particular, are great ninja assassins at getting into our plants and herbs.
So make sure you do your research and really weight the risks and benefits on bringing your indoor herb garden ideas to the family!
3. Do I have (or CAN I create) a space for the Indoor Herb Garden?
Now this question is a little tricky… I will tell you why.
Whenever a client comes to me wanting advice or consultation on herbs and gardening, if they ask me recommendations or the “how to’s” when it comes to their space this is what I often say.
There is no space that is too small
I do stand by that!
What comes into play however, is the WILLINGNESS to get creative and carve out that space for your indoor herb garden. That means, there may be structures or things within your current home that may need to be shifted, moved, altered, etc.
If the willingness of the homeowner is there, then great! The SKY’S THE LIMIT!!
If it is not there, then the indoor herb garden ideas just aren’t compatible at that time.
What we want to avoid is using the “my space is too small” as an excuse for the unwillingness.
Next up… we choose are materials!!

Choosing materials can sometimes be a bit easier when doing an indoor rather than outdoor project. Because most of the time, it is already narrowed down for us, just by default of location.
Here are some options for you!
Self-Watering Humidity Domes (these are perfect for those starting out from seedlings!)
The next step in this process is asking yourself…
WHAT IS MY LONG-TERM GOAL?
