                Indoor herb garden help?

                Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

                I am completely new to gardening so I really have no clue about how to plant or care for plants. I am wanting to start an indoor herb garden, I just don’t know where to start. I went to my local Saturday market and got an idea on which herbs I’d like, mostly for culinary purposes since I like to cook. So if I buy the already planted and partially grown herbs where do I go from there? Best potting soil, planters, fertilizers? What is the best combination of herbs to grow all together? I’ve done a lot of reading online but every site has told me different things so I am just confused. I need all the advice I can get, thanks 🙂
