Herb garden kits can be purchased for either indoor or outdoor use. It's so nice and convenient to be able to grow the herbs that you enjoy right at your own home. Purchasing a garden kit is faster and easier than using pots, buying soil and finding seeds. Everything you need is right in the kit. It also saves a lot of money by not buying these herbs at the store. The prices range from as low as $10 or as high as $300, depending upon the kit. However, health is the main purpose of the herb garden kits. By having these herbs at your fingertips, it's more than likely that you'll be using them all the time.
Just some of the herbs included in these kits are thyme, dill, parsley, basil, oregano, cilantro, chives, savory, sweet marjoram and mustard. This is a great variety for your salads every day. They're also good for brewing herbal tea.
The herb garden kits come in different forms and themes. They also have a variety of herbs in each kit to choose from. The average kit has seeds of several herbs and some plain containers. Larger kits have many seeds for lots of different herbs. These kits have more decorative containers to spice up your home.
If you really want to have convenience, some kits come with the seeds already planted. They just need water. Dirt pellets and a greenhouse dome are included in the kits. Some of the kits come with an instruction CD-Rom rather than just a pamphlet.
Some of the herb garden kits are made up into a theme. A kit may contain just the herbs you need for Italian dishes. Some are made just for medicinal or culinary purposes. There are even kits dedicated to simply herbal teas.
You can go to a local nursery and find many kinds of herb garden kits. There are also several websites where you can shop for the kit you want. Maybe having more than one kit is a good idea. Shop around for the best herbs at the best prices.
With some kits you may need to get the proper lighting, if the kit isn't where a lot of sun comes in. Whichever herb garden kits you choose, you will be starting to live a healthier lifestyle just by doing a little gardening in the home. So just imagine what you want to do with them and look for a kit that suits your needs and get growing. Herb kits are a great addition to any house or apartment.
