I don't know about you, but I hate when I buy a bushel of cilantro, only to use a hint of it, and have the rest go bad in less than a week. But nothing beats using fresh herbs, since dried options just aren't the same.
But alas, I've found the perfect way around this. Grow your own herbs. Wouldn't it be easier to pluck a few fresh leaves of basil off of your own plant than running to the market to buy a whole bushel you don't necessarily need? And you don't need top-notch gardening skills to start your own herb garden. The Indoor Herb Garden Starter Kit from Spade to Fork makes it super easy.
Don't worry about having to figure out things on your own. The kit comes with everything you need to start your own fresh herb collection at home, including a growing guide that'll give you tips about how to tend to your plants, like how often you should water them. Follow the directions (mostly making sure your plants get access to water and sunlight) and you'll have your own sprouts in just a few weeks.
In the kit, you'll find certified USDA organic seeds for basil, cilantro, parsley, sage and thyme. And since you'll need somewhere to grow your new plants, the kit also comes with peat pots, potting soil discs, and plant markers.
Customers who purchased the starter kit mentioned that they've saved money now that they don't have to buy herbs at the market.
"I have been dreaming of growing my own herbs when I found this indoor kit. I get tired of buying herbs at the store only to use part of them and then throw the rest away. It's expensive. So in my apartment I'm growing my own and using only what I need. Plus they're fresh. Not all of the ones I would find at the store were organic, so I REALLY like how I can grow my own organic herbs, and spend less."
You really don't need to know anything about gardening to get started. Take it from this customer who's never had much luck with keeping things alive.
"No matter how hard I try, I murder every plant I try to grow. But these are practically foolproof and come with everything you need (except the water and sunlight lol)."
The Herb Garden Starter Kit is only $19.97. That's all you need to start flexing your greenthumb.
