How to Grow An Indoor Herb Garden in Your Motor Home
There is nothing like culinary herbs when it comes to giving your gourmet dishes a delectable flavor. You can grow most of these herbs right in your kitchen, and even in your motor home. So if you are a full-time RV-er and feel envious of people with a front garden where they can plant what they like from flowering blooms to herbs, you need not feel jealous, anymore. That’s because creating an indoor herb garden in your home-on-wheels is not at all difficult. And it lets you have some DIY fun in the process, too. Moreover, a kitchen- garden is compact, easy to care and maintain. So check out how to grow one in your rolling home.
Choose the Right Herb Varieties for Cultivating
Some herbs are not suitable for growing in small pots. We recommend that you include herbs like basil, mint, marjoram, chives, balm, lemon, rosemary, thyme, and oregano in your kitchen garden. Place your containers near east-facing windows so that they receive adequate sunlight in the morning. Remember that some plants like basil may require artificial grow lights in addition to natural sunshine. You can also put these plants outdoors when you stay for a few days in an RV park.
Use Deep Planters
Always choose deep containers with drainage holes at the base for drainage. Place a thin layer of pebbles below and then potting soil. Herbs you grow in your RV will take around three to four weeks before you use them to season your meals.
Care for Your Greens
Water your plants regularly but first, find out how much watering each variety needs. Use natural fertilizer when required so that the herbs receive the essential nutrients. Prune them on a periodic basis for enhanced growth. Check the soil regularly to ensure that it is not drying out. Your herbs should look beautiful, healthy, and green to add flavors to your meals.
Growing an indoor herb garden is a great way to beautify your RV, and to make your on-the-go meals more savory. With a small herb-garden in your kitchen, you will not have to spend on costly ingredients for preparing lip-smacking delicacies. Add them to your salad or barbeque meals to enhance their taste, aroma and flavor. And in case you need further information about our motor homes on offer for sale, contact us now.
