Growing in the home plants and aromatic herbs is a way to enrich some of the green spaces of our house. In addition, you can enjoy in the kitchen of the products that we cultivate ourselves, in such a way as to flavor our dishes as we like. I will show you how to make a greenhouse windows kitchen. Let’s start!
You have to needed these tools:
- Plants or aromatic herbs
- Plastic cover
Search for the ideal place
First, plan the spaces and the type of environment you need. The ideal place is an area near the windows, where there is good lighting (but not too excessive) and an average level of humidity. We will have to experiment different places until you find the most suitable one, taking into account that any type of plant needs adequate lighting and temperatures. We can draw a corner to decorate in the kitchen or in the veranda, if particularly radiated by the sun. If we choose to use an outdoor place, we build a small structure with flexible hoses tied together. The vases will be placed under this support, on which we will stretch a plastic sheet to protect our plants properly.
Selection of plants to be cultivated
Next, we select the plants or herbs to be cultivated. For example, rosemary, sage, basil and thymus can be used daily in our recipes. Other aromas that we can grow at home are oregano, chives, parsley and mint. If we are still unfamiliar, it will be preferable to use plastic labels to be planted in the earth to distinguish them. To make the plants decorative, we put them in containers weighed with our furniture. To achieve good results, we will have to constantly take care of our plants, giving them the right amount of water.
