Even when the cold season would not allow it, it is possible to have a little green at home, by cultivating herbs. Always useful in the kitchen, the aromatic herbs, also called odorous herbs, are plants that, partly because of their limited growth, partly because of the ease of their cultivation, are perfect to be placed on a windowsill or also in the kitchen.

Growing herbs at home is not a difficult task. You need just some attention and regular watering, combined with direct light. The vase can be composed by using a low flowerpot saucer and a container with a hole at the bottom, where you will place the drainage material, such as clay. Then you should put some good topsoil in, not too compressed, in the midst of which, on the surface, an inch or two deep, the seeds will be placed, to be watered regularly and put in a sheltered and bright position.

If you buy the plants directly, the base is the same, but the bud which is already a bit grown up, should be placed in the center, leaving the roots to be thoroughly covered with soil. The care and watering are the same.
