Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Grow Herbs


Growing herbs can be a great way to supplement your diet with healthy and delicious foods. You can add them to nearly any recipe, and they’re a great way to get more flavor in your food without adding calories or fat. Plus, they’re cheap and easy to grow! Here are five reasons why you should try growing herbs:

1. Better Flavor

  • Herbs have a more intense flavor.
  • They are better for cooking.
  • You can use them to make your food taste better.
  • They are better for your health in general, and even if you’re not eating them, they’re still good for the environment!

2. Less Pesticide Residue

When you grow herbs in your garden, herb pots or containers, you have the option of choosing organic soil. Organic soil is free from pesticides and chemicals that can ruin the flavor of your herb plants. If you do choose to grow herbs in soil that has been treated with chemical fertilizers and pesticides, then make sure to wash them thoroughly before consuming them.

3. They’re Pretty

  • It’s good to have a hobby that people can see. People like seeing things, and if you have herbs growing in your house, it’s likely to start up a conversation about them. In particular, people love talking about how pretty plants are—especially when they’re colorful or unusual.
  • If you’re looking for something new and exciting to do with your home decorating budget, herbs are an excellent option because they’re beautiful and relatively inexpensive compared to other plants (and shrubs). You can use them in any room of the house: on windowsills, shelves or tabletops; as part of garden arrangements; or even just scattered around loosely on countertops or tables like confetti (but way prettier).
  • No matter where they’re placed—inside or out—herbs add color, texture and depth to any space they inhabit. They also make great gifts! Give one as part of a housewarming present if someone moves into their first apartment/house/co-op and needs some plants for decoration purposes.*

4. You Can Use Them for Almost Any Recipe

One thing to keep in mind is that you can use herbs in almost any food you make. They’re not just for meat and soups; they can be added to salads, desserts and even tea. You can also grow herbs that are used for making herbal remedies.

Herbs add lots of great flavor to foods, but they also have their own health benefits as well. Many herbs are thought to increase energy levels or help with digestion — so eating them might just make you feel better overall!

5. Herbs are Easy to Grow

Herbs are easy to grow and care for. This can be attributed to the fact that they’re small, which means you don’t need a lot of space or resources to grow them. If you want, you can even grow them indoors in your kitchen or bathroom!

Herbs are also easy to harvest—once they’ve grown big enough and matured, all you have to do is pick what you want. You don’t have to worry about cutting down huge trees or digging up massive roots like when harvesting fruit trees or other plants with extensive root systems.

Don’t you want to put some herbs in your window so you can have delicious and pesticide-free food?

Do you want to grow your own herbs? Here are 5 reasons why you should:

  • Herbs are easy to grow in your home. You don’t need a lot of space, as most herbs can be grown in pots or boxes on the window sill, and even if you have a garden, many herbs prefer the coolness of an indoor environment.
  • Herbs are pretty! They add color and life to any room. Plus if you have children they will love picking them (though be careful because some kids have sensitive skin).
  • Herbs are good for you! They contain antioxidants which help prevent cancer, as well as vitamins like A and C. In fact I’m sitting here eating some fresh basil right now while writing this article! Taste buds around the world rejoice!
  • Herbs go great with almost any recipe so there’s no limit to what kind of meals you can make using them instead of traditional ingredients like salt or sugar which aren’t really healthy anyway…


I hope this article has given you some ideas about growing your own herbs. I think it’s a great way to get children involved in the kitchen and teach them something about where food comes from. You can also save money by growing your own herbs instead of buying them at the grocery store!
