Calling all indoor gardeners, science enthusiastists, and herb-ivores! Follow along as we create our very own windowsill herb garden in the center of New York City. And please, offer the tips and tricks we need to keep these plants strong and healthy. 

Thank you for your helpful advice (and gentle scolding) regarding our herb garden. We installed the grow light yesterday, and in what has been a miraculous transformation, our oregano plant has already gained new life (the dill plant will still take some work). 

Take a look at the before (left) and after (right):


After some pruning, our parsley has perked up, and we've also cut back the old growth on the chives.


Stay tuned as our garden (hopefully) continues to improve, and please write in with more advice.

Our next step is to harvest some herbs and buy bigger pots. What else would you recommend? What are we doing wrong? Help us out in the comments below!
