herbs



My mint and rosemary plants are awesome!
I grow them indoor now and they still alive.
Hope they survive the Winter...

I always want my own herb garden, but very reluctant, because I live in a very tight space. Do they grow well indoor, in pots?? Well, this gives me hope.

How lovely!
Just make sure your herbs have enough light (put the pots at a wndow) and enough water but not too much, espacially for the rosemary wich is a mediterranean plant build up to face dryness.
The frequency of watering depends on your heating, which have influence on the moist in the air. Avoid overwatering, that will bring mildew, especially to the mint.
Better underwater a bit, rosemary and mint are strong plants.
The best way to know if your plants need water is to touch the ground in the pot. It must be very slightly moist at the surface.

But there is one thing you can do every day: speak to your plants! Say "thank you" and "how beautiful you are today!". They really appreciate!
And they love music too.
:o)

Such delicate pictures!

Is a trip to Japan on the cards for you anytime soon?

I wish the Yen was not so strong right now!

Claire said...

This is so gorgeous... Fine and delicate like your drawings...

fernanda said...

It helps if you give them a little bit of organic fertilizer. For indoor plants I like to use one that is seaweed based, because it has a pleasant smell unlike fish meal, etc.

Demara said...

OH! they look beautifully delicious :P

So nice!I feel like to have mint and rosemary too!I bout rosemary several times in Sweden, but all of them died.I guess it was because lack of sunshine,I kept them indoor by the window but as you might know winter is so dark everyday there.Today I transplanted 2 Avocado seeds from pet bottles with water to soil.

I can smell mint and rosemary !!! and imagine a walk a sunny land, or an herbal tea with my grand mother...

Beautiful pictures !

MODsquad said...

One of my favorite things to do with herbs, especially mint, is rub my hands up the stalks and smell the lovely oil that comes off.

Beautiful shots!

Cookie Cutter said...

Love the dash of green against the white! Makes it look really refreshing, bright and cheery.

I haven't been very good with plants but I'm gonna try my hands on them again. I always see these little pots in Japanese living spaces which I totally adore. Kawaii!!

janis said...

Your indoor herbs look very happy... :)

Francesca said...

Hope they do too! (Technically rosemary could just stay outdoors through the winter)

Yoli said...

ii-ne-kore said...

what beautiful pictures of the mint stems!

la ninja said...

ha, so you said on your comment.
my basil's gone indoors now too (it was starting to feel a bit worse for wear). let's see whether it survives the move ;)

Betty said...

I've got some rosemary in my garden that spends the whole winter outside and keeps growing every year even more gorgeous :) I love, love, love using it in my cooking.
