If you have a facebook page please share with me .. 😉 and I’ll do the same Growing herbs indoors works pretty well, and you always have fresh herbs to use for cooking. Herbs do well growing in containers and provide some good lighting , south window works well inside. Chives and Lavender were just a few examples today on herbs being planted indoors, but really many other herb will do fine too. I plan to grow from seed , basil, rosemary, thyme, and several more for the winter months. Nothing better than having your own fresh cooking herbs growing indoors to use at anytime you cook. Growing from seed , lemon basil, black beauty dahlia, bleeding hearts, and lupine all indoors. Planting from seed continues as I look forward to my Spring season in the greenhouse.

    You’re not supposed to pot more than one? lavender plant in a pot…they grow to be huge if done right… otherwise, wonderful video.

    Now that I moved from a house to an apartment with a balcony that looks over the ocean, planting herbs outside is pretty much impossible. My sage seems to adapt and like it outside, but I keep oregano, thyme, basil and mints indoors by sunny windows. They seem to like it and have survived the first year… all except basil which seems to grow rather quickly, get woody and that means it’s time to use the seeds and replant outside. 🙂 I also grow my oregano by placing? cuttings in water. Thanks!

    About a month ago I planted Lavender, Rosemary, Sage, Peppermint and Lemon balm in containers on my deck. They are just beautiful, I love them. I’m very new to growing herbs, or anything for that matter, and I’m unsure of when or how to pick/harvest any of them. Also, do I leave them outside when winter comes? The? lemon balm is quite big & in a heavy container. Any advice/help you could give me would be so appreciated. Thanks so much! xxMeg

    lavender can handle drier conditions , will just depend on your climate and heat in your? area..

  • lucinavalle 7 years ago

    How often do you water your lavender??

  • simplynaturalideas 7 years ago

  • RavenRof 7 years ago

    My herbs look sad and gloomy =( not sure if its the water, the soil… or maybe lack of sun? Its my first time growing herbs, im growing Parsley, Coreander, Basil and Salvia. Some of the shoots got twisted and low to the soil from watering them, the weight of the water kind of bashed them down and they aren’t going back up. Humpf.?

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    you may want to try it again, don’t? think it worked..

    EXTREMELY INFORMATIVE; THANK YOU.. I tried clicking on the subscribe button of the video, but I don’t know if it took; please double-check for me;

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    you are too, I really appreciate you watching my videos and especially commenting, hope it? helps! I hope your cuttings make it.. sometimes you never know the heating mat helps a lot.. so I know they’ll do fine.. 🙂

  • prairiepatch 7 years ago

    Hello again Diane, you are such a sweet heart. I did much the same as you this fall, except I had a big pot of mixed herbs ( thyme, oregano, sage, cilantro, rosemary, soup celery) that I had planted up in the spring and then I just? brought the whole thing inside for the winter. They did very well and now they are getting all sorts of fresh spring growth. So I have just taken a bunch of clippings of most of them, potted them up and have them on the heat mat. I think that should work.

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    worth a try but when I haven’t actually done it it is hard? for me to say what would work.. gardening experiments are fun give it a try..

  • 1beverleys 7 years ago

    Thanks for your reply, i? buy the plants from the supermarket and maybe i need to re-pot, i check they don’t get too dry and there is light coming through the bathroom but maybe not enough.I was going to plant some in the garden today but we have freezing cold weather this evening in the UK.

  • freakygeaktwo 7 years ago

    I was wondering if one could treat potted herbs like a bonsai when in a large pot if roots get too much and space is running out, instead of looking for a ten inch from a six in or what ever largest size your growing in, take the herb out trim the roots by a? third or a take of a quarter? mixing myself up here and then trim off the top and repot, would this work?

  • freakygeaktwo 7 years ago

    with each try do you do anything different to keep them longer ? I find basil does not like to be moved about from spot to spot too much once they get use to a light source and are doing great keep them there and they will grow like weeds.also you’ll want to do what’s called succession planting as? one lot dies back the next one starts up.

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    , I have rosemary in my patio, cool area and I keep it on the dry side seems? to be working the basil I have a pot , it is surviving , watch your water, make sure gets good lighting and yes try again… that is what I would do.. 🙂

  • 1beverleys 7 years ago

    I started growing basil and rosemary, they seemed to thrive in the bathroom and then they just died, i keep trying but one min they look great and then they? wilt, i keep trying.

  • superslyfoxx1 7 years ago

    Thanks again for your? help

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    , I haven’t tried it but give it a shot.. I grow mine from? seed.. which can be time consuming or find someone selling plugs already rooted .. good luck..

  • superslyfoxx1 7 years ago

    Oh wow..that was a quick reply. Thanks so much. So… I will give it a try. Also, this may sound kinda odd… but what about the rosemary fresh cuttings you buy from the store. Do you think they will take root? My neighborhood store sells packaged fresh? rosemary.

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    , you can only try in your area, I am in the midwest and? will be starting some soon for my greenhouse.. I also have one growing in my back patio that I need to harvest very soon it was left over from last season.. they take a while to grow from seed just to let you know..

  • superslyfoxx1 7 years ago

    I would like to grow rosemary now.? I am in Ga and I am wondering if this will work inside.

  • LoniYoni 7 years ago

    I’ve tried to grow herbs indoors? but i get quite of few net bugs

  • SoundOut260 7 years ago

    thank you for your reply? a great help much appreciated.all the best

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    , that size of pot will be fine until the roots get crowded, you will notice this as it will dry out quickly, then you can go up a pot size and transplant them. How fast it grows depends on the area you have it? growing in and the lighting and plant food you may use. Cutting with a scissors or shears of some sort works best. Water when feels dry to the touch, just poke your finger in the soil , you will be able to tell.. thanks for stopping by and good luck! hope this helped!

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    Hi, you can do a search of my videos, I may have a few, but haven’t did many as? when the time came to transplant I was out in the greenhouse busy as ever..:)

  • neomacomb 7 years ago

    Do you have videos that detail the process? moving the germinated seeds from the flats to individual containers?

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    many of the hard shelled seeds especially in the morning glory family should be soaked .. some seeds need a cold treatment as if they are outside in the winter then when spring comes they germinate outside , we are just mimicing this.. when in doubt? google it.. you can find all answers usually or get a book that is has something to do with growing from seed..:)

  • songs98 7 years ago

    thax very much for? the video,yhanx for your hard work.since I am a beginner in planting and dont know anything about growing plants and stuff so I was wondering how do you know which seed to freeze in the freezer and which ones to soak over night.I would really appreciate and need your reply:)

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    have fun growing it is very rewarding.. as you will find out.. or are finding out..right now I am in my greenhouse season.. lots? to do and transplant.. funniest part of growing.. 🙂

  • UkeliDokeli 7 years ago

    I’ve just started growing herbs and spices and fruits and vegetables. For the first time in my life I’m actually growing some kind of plant and watching it’s development. They are like pets to me. I care for them just the same.

    You’ve made me realize I need seeds from fruit etc. instead of discarding but buying them, and? to collect and grow them in a big box (indoors) So thank you.

    It’s a process. But It saves alot of money on groceries. When you know how to harvest every year, month or week.

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    , I just use? plain water for my seedlings thru this sprayer but it can be used for multiple sprays.. I got this siphon pump sprayer at our local kmart, walmart store, or any hardware should carry .. Probably a seasonal product in some areas.. it is very handy to water my seedlings and getting started from seed.. thanks for subscribing..:)

  • pokeythepatriot777 7 years ago

    What type of watering can are you using? do you have it premixed with fertilizer or just plain water?? thanks – I’m a new sub’er

  • dianemummvideos 7 years ago

    , Hi Amanda, thanks for sharing? that history.. here they will seed back usually, such a pretty flower to grow.

  • GettingThereGreen 7 years ago

    I grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada. lupins (aka lupines) are native to that area and it is actually illegal to purposely plant them there. they are a widespread wild flower in NS. they are also poisonous to humans (and grazing cattle can produce poisonous milk if they eat the lupins). lupins totally cover the fields and the ditches along the highways? in NS. they were my favourite flower growing up. ~Amanda
