Keeping potted herbs indoors using Cole and Mason herb keepers is a straightforward process that adds a touch of greenery and flavour to your living space. Indoor herb planters offer the convenience of having fresh herbs readily available, and with the help of these herb keepers, maintaining them becomes effortless.

Here's a step-by-step guide to keeping potted herbs indoors:

  • Choose a Sunny Spot: Select a sunny location in your home for your herb keepers. A kitchen window sill often provides ample sunlight, making it an ideal spot for herb growth, especially if you're short on outdoor garden space.
  • Select the Right Herbs: Opt for herbs that thrive indoors, such as Basil, Mint, Parsley, or Coriander. These herbs are not only easy to grow but also add freshness and flavour to your culinary creations.
  • Prepare the Herb Keeper: Begin by placing the hydro felt pads in the base of the Cole and Mason herb keeper. These pads will serve as the medium for water distribution to your herbs.
  • Position the Herb Pots: Set your round or square herb pots with a base of 8.5cm or less on top of the hydro felt pads within the herb keeper.
  • Watering Process: Position the container onto the water trough and fill the water through the spouts provided. The herbs will draw the water they need from the felt pads, ensuring they receive proper hydration without the risk of overwatering.
  • Enjoy Prolonged Herb freshness: With the self-watering feature of the herb keeper, your potted herbs will thrive and remain fresher for longer periods. Unlike traditional pots, these herb keepers provide a consistent water supply, reducing the need for frequent watering and minimising herb wilting.

By following these simple steps, you can effortlessly maintain a thriving indoor herb garden using Cole and Mason herb keepers. Not only will you have fresh herbs at your fingertips for culinary use, but you'll also enhance your indoor space with vibrant greenery and natural fragrance. Say goodbye to wilted herbs and hello to a greener, fresher home ambiance.
