Germaine Greer once described gardening as â€˜the best alternative therapyâ€™. With the glorious weather this week I decided to put this theory to the test – one problem: I live in a top floor flat and have no garden.
Still, if you are in a similar position, donâ€™t let that put you off! As long as you have a window, you are pretty much set. Taking some soil in a pot, indoor gardens are ideal for growing herbs, such as basil, parsley and sage. And, although itâ€™s scary to consider it, those with kids will know the summer holidays are fast approaching, but this could be a fun way to keep children occupied. You could even use yogurt pots to grow your herbs, encouraging kids (or adults!) to decorate the pots using recycled materials found around the house!
Having already unintentionally killed a number of plants in my Nanâ€™s garden, Iâ€™m not holding out much hope for my own herb adventure, but I will keep you informed of my progress. If you have the chance, weâ€™d love to see your attempts too!Tags: germaine greer, herb growing., indoor gardening
