Best Herbs for Indoor Gardening by Michelle Van De Merwe

Growing your own herbs indoors can be both fun and therapeutic as it is relatively easy and not really expensive. Herbs can be placed roughly into 3 categories: culinary, medicinal and ornamental. Fresh herbs add a wonderful taste to a meal and can add just that right touch to decorate any dish. They can create a beautiful replacement for indoor plants having a multitude of uses - sprinkling on salads, spicing up your salsas, medicinal uses, teas, decoration and fragrance. Michelle van der Merwe is South African who has lived in numerous African countries and Saudi Arabia working as a Medical Technologist in Hematology (medical laboratory) and now Kuwait. Herbs are just one of my many interests since I was a teenager as I grew up on a farm in South Africa. If you are interested in the topic, visit the AWARE Center on April 26, 2011 at 7:00pm.
