I have been growing mint in my greenhouse all winter and now am branching out to other herbs. I have started peppermint, parsley and lavender by seeds and can’t wait to expand my herbal houseplant collection. I already love picking a leaf of mint and adding it to my ice water every day and have made an mint infused oil for salve and am excited to up my herbal collection and learn more from this new book.
Inside the beautifully illustrated pages, author and expert herbalist Susan Betz lets you in on a little secret: Herbs make great houseplants. And, you don’t need fancy grow lights, expensive potting soil, or high-end equipment to grow them. All you need is a sunny windowsill and the right plant. Learn which herbs perform best as houseplants, how to care for them, and even how to harvest and use your homegrown herbs for culinary creations, household cleaning products, herbal teas, handmade crafts, and more.Order Herbal Houseplants on Amazon
