At Raimondi Horticultural Group and The Little Flower Shoppe we pride ourselves on continuing education for our staff to stay on the cutting edge of our industry. Recently, we’ve had multiple opportunities across the tri-state area to do just that! Last week our floral designer Anna went to Cos Cob, CT for a seasonal floral design class […]
Winter seems to finally be here and with fewer outdoor activities, it is a great time to create an indoor winter herb garden in your home (or even office.) For those people who like to cook – this is a great way to achieve the best and freshest ingredients during the winter months.
We like to grow Oregano, Parsley, Basil, and Rosemary and of course, there are many others. These herbs work well in indoor pots near a well-lit window. Indirect light works well too but direct sunlight near a window is preferred. South, East, and West facing sunlight are the best.
If you can get out to your local garden center during these cold days, there you will find high-quality herb seeds or small herb plants that have already rooted, potting soil, fertilizer, and some great pots if you don t have them already. This is a great project this time of year. Also, when you are at the grocery store, you might happen to find some basil near the tomatoes that is rooted and easily plantable.
If you are at home, your whole family will enjoy seeing the plants as they grow and savoring them in your favorite recipes. Winter is such a great time to use your culinary skills. Other choice herbs that we like to cook with are Cilantro, Mint, and Chives. Let us be a part of your indoor winter herb garden journey here at RHG.
Have fun and get growing this winter!!
