How to grow your own herb garden in any indoor or outdoor space

One of the easiest ways to scratch all of those itches is to grow your own herb garden. If you’re not much of a gardener and think that you don’t have the space to grow your own herbs, have no fear.  They’re some of the easiest plants out there to grow even if you don’t have a green thumb. Plus, you can even grow your own herb garden inside — so not having the outdoor space is no longer an excuse.
