Easiest Plants to Grow Indoors
Even if you don’t have a garden, there are easy vegetables and herbs you can grow in pots indoors. Some plants require very little effort and grow quickly like microgreens and sprouts.
Fresh herbs like basil, lemongrass, and thyme are great options to add some greenery to your kitchen window and flavor to your meals.
If you’re looking for a bigger harvest, try planting tomatoes, radishes, dwarf pea varieties, or lettuce in a container. Just make sure they get enough sunshine by a window or on your porch.
