Which is Better – Growing Herbs in Garden Indoors Or Outdoors?

Some people may have the privilege to decide which is better for them – growing herbs in garden indoors or outside of the house. Others may not be that lucky. This is an important question you should ask yourself because; just as why you want to grow herbs can be as a serious question as where you want to place your garden.

When you envision an herb garden you may think of a large estate garden covered with green basil, thyme and various other herbs. This would be a disappointing picture especially if you live on 7th floor of an efficiency apartment in the middle of a buzzing city. Here are some questions you may want to ask yourself to be able to tell which is best for you – growing herbs in garden indoors or outdoors:

1. How large of a space do you have for your garden?

Some plants require larger space to grow because without enough space their roots will get tangled and the plant won’t grow to its fullest. However, not all herbs require larger space to grow. Herbs, especially indoor herbs can actually grow better in smaller gardens with shallow organic soil. You can create a small garden even if you have a small balcony!

2. How much sun does it get?

Plants prepare their food with the help of light. Providing your herbs with the right amount of light is necessary for them to grow healthy.

3. How do you intend to use your garden?

Are you growing herbs for culinary purpose, medicinal or just to enjoy for their beauty?

4. What type of soil do you have?

The nutrients in your soil are the final component in building healthy soil. Plants need certain nutrients to grow and to fend off diseases. Your soil should have the essential nutrients. As you answer these questions, you’ll be able to tell whether you possess the right environment for growing herbs in garden indoors or outside in the yard.
