Indoor Herb Gardens

This guide suggests herbs to try growing indoors and provides growing condition tips! Want to move beyond herbs? The Joe Gardener Podcast is a wealth of information and its website breaks down each week's pod in a detailed narrative. You can grow herbs and veggies inside with a simple shelving unit and hanging lights. Let us know what you grow!
