Make An Indoor Herb Garden

Try making an herb garden to grow in your kitchen - herbs are a great way to add flavor to your cooking without adding sodium or fat!


  • Wide-mouth mason jars
  • Rocks, gravel, pebbles, or marbles
  • Potting mix, preferably moisture control
  • Herb seeds of choice*
  • Water


  1. Add 1-2 inches of rocks, gravel, pebbles or marbles to your jar. Then fill the jar with potting mix, leaving space at the top for more potting mix (about 1 inch).
  2. Plant herbs seeds of choice* and top with a small handful of potting mix. Lightly water the top of the soil.
  3. Place indoors near a window or on a countertop that receives ample sunlight. Refer to each herbs' instructions for ongoing care and maintenance.
  4. Watch your herbs grow and enjoy a burst of flavor in your food when they are ready!

* Not all herbs will thrive in a glass jar for a long period of time, but this glass jar will be suitable as a garden starter! You can transfer your herbs to a larger pot with drainage once your seedlings take root.
