  |     |   Life at Pine View Village

herbs in planterLiving in an apartment in Flagstaff doesn't mean you have to give up gardening. In fact, your windowsills are the perfect place for growing some delicious herbs that can spice up your cooking and also save you some cash. 

Basil

This versatile and fragrant plant isn't just delicious—it can also purify indoor air. Basil loves the sun and warmth, which isn't hard to find in sunny Arizona.

Rosemary

This is another great herb to have on hand for tasty dishes like rosemary potatoes. It also acts as a natural air freshener. Rosemary grows well in the winter, especially when placed out of direct sunlight.

Thyme

Want the perfect steak? Then add a few sprigs of fresh thyme to the au jus. When thyme is plucked fresh off the plant, the smell and flavor are like nothing else. This herb also needs full sun to thrive, making a west- or east-facing window necessary for its survival. 

Oregano

This potent herb truly spices up ordinary spaghetti sauces. It grows well in lower light. 

Chives

Chives are tough and won't stop growing, even when you have a brown thumb. Perfect for scrambled eggs or a cozy baked potato topped with butter and sour cream. Yum!

Lavender

This fragrant herb can be used as a natural sleep aid. It can also freshen up any room of the home with its pleasant aroma.

Mint

Mint can be used in home remedies or to freshen breath when you're in a pinch. They also go great in Mojitos!

Parsley

Parsley is also a component in many home remedies and delicious recipes. Place this beautiful and versatile herb anywhere it can get full sun.
