5 easy herbs to grow indoors

Indoor gardening is great: You literally reap what you sow, you can save money in the long run, and it's been said to improve your self-esteem.

It's not as difficult as you may think, too. If you're nervous about starting a herb garden - hey, we're not all Martha Stewart! - check out this list below!

THE EASIEST HERBS TO GROW

  • Lemongrass – it’s not a fussy plant and is almost impossible to kill, plus it grows fast.
  • Chives – they grow quickly and dony mind if there isn’t much light.
  • Mint – it grows like a weed and is happy in shade.
  • Parsley – even though it grows slowly, it is a hardy herb that doesn’t need much light or maintenance.
  • Rosemary – it prefers to be dry so it doesn’t need a lot of watering, and doesn’t require high-quality soil.

Not convinced? Perhaps knowing how to use these herbs might help.
