Growing Herbs Indoors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I live in N. New Mexico and I am trying to grow herbs indoors as the weather won't allow out door growing for 5 months per year. Any Iideas or suggestion on equipment (inexpensive) to use and what herbs to grow.

There are some good hydroponic units available if you just google it. These products don't use any soil and are very reliable.

grow lights

A good friend of mine is a fantastic gardener, he grows me produce for a lot of my special wine dinner events. I just went and picked up the most fantastic basil that he grew it all in his basement. He built a grow box (he had experience with other medicinal herbs) and uses fluorescent bulbs on timers. He experimented with a few different varieties to see what ones would do well in our climate (we're in seattle) and ended up with a nice miniature greek basil and a standard basil that both did well. And coincidently, we're both from Albuquerque, where you cooking out there?

Most herbs can be grown indoors in pots much like house plants. The key is at least 6 hours of direct sunlight or some form of artificial sunlight.

As soon as I have enough posts, i will provide some links.

Good luck!
