Indoor gardening is a great way to harvest fresh food. Even if you have a large garden outside during the summer, indoor gardening gives you fresh greens or herbs inside during the off-season winter months. Indoor gardening has some major bonuses!
Indoor Herb Garden Ideas
We started indoor gardening with herbs in pots of soil.
Then added a mini greenhouse to start seeds in the springtime with some indoor grow lights (we use the Sunblaster ones) which as a nice step up for indoor gardening. If you want to grow super easy and basics growing microgreens is a great start for beginners too.
Thanks to modern technology and new innovation, there are some really neat indoor gardening ideas too!
Today’s post will be full of ideas for growing food inside, from simple to some hydroponics. I’ve also written a whole post on indoor herb garden kits, which come with everything you need to grow herbs inside.
The type of indoor gardening you’d like to do depends on your time and finances. There are many basic ways to grow food inside like growing herbs in containers, to complicated indoor hydroponics like the indoor vertical garden idea below. We often like to grow spinach indoors in our household.

Very interesting ideas! Would love to have more information on how to grow the upside down herbs and other plants. Where can one find the containers for this type of gardening.
please tell me does hydrophonics method plants cause any health issues after consme
I’ve never heard that it does, it’s basically using the nutrients that are in soil but without the soil itself. I’d google companies that sell hydrophonics in your area and email them further questions 🙂
