    What is the paper you put at the bottom of the pot before the soil? Newbie here 😂

  2. David Sabo on September 14, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Thank you

  3. h on September 14, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Why’d you put a paper bag in the bottom of the pot at 10:47?

  4. Yanni P on September 14, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    I am in Zone 5 (elevation 10,000 feet, with tons of snow, short growing season), ski resort environment. I thought "perennials" would come back in the spring, but ALL my herbs (including PERENNIALS) ALWAYS died in winter. Is it because it is too cold?

  5. Steph on September 14, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    My cilantro shoots up like Dali’s elephants legs…then fall over…I keep trying- using different soils, etc..and keep failing

  6. Lake Pleasant Grove on September 14, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Wonderful information! Thank you so much!

    Much better than most gardening videos I see. Well done!

  14. spacey rogue on September 14, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Wow this was really helpful. I’m changing my eating habits and I wanted to grow Cilantro, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme. Maybe I’ll add basil to the list lol

  15. Christian Johansen on September 14, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Thanks for giving a rough watering guide by herb. So many people who post skip over this vital element of herb growing. I am a tend to over water. Thanks for opening my eyes 😉

  16. Mercedes Mansion SUV Life on September 14, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    LOVE THIS!!! I’m a huge fan of Arugula and had no idea I could grow it that easily. I’m a fan of every herb you mentioned and just yesterday (7/27/22) I repotted my Sweet Basil, Rosemary, and Sage in a pot together. 🤷🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ Thanks for the many lessons learned. Time to harvest some of my Basil now. 🤣

  17. Debra Murphy on September 14, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    I want to know herbs that smell good to grow in my bathroom.

  18. rumblfmp on September 14, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Arugula – I had to search for that one to get the Dutch name for this, I did not recognize this from the pictures shown. We call this "rucola" and it’s also known as "rocket" but I only known this as a ruffled leaf. It is sold here as salad and not as a herb but giving it’s taste I can see why this is also a herb.
    Growing basil is fun and I use this a lot. Great for making pesto but it is very versatile – I guess you could build a whole youtube channel around cooking with basil 😉

  19. Liz Torres on September 14, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Mine keep fetting infested or sick 😕

  20. Calsefire on September 14, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Plants always die in my house. The stems become very soft and rotten. I don’t give it too much water, i think, but I have no idea.

    -Me living in an apartment taking notes fully aware global supply chains are rapidly collapsing and I need to find some way to contribute so local farmers will trade me potatoes and I won’t starve post society.-

    Yes, go on.

  23. Destiny Babb on September 14, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Thank you; very informative & achievable. 💕💕

  26. Susy Q on September 14, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    the over watering part made me laugh so much. me me me

  27. GolfLogistics on September 14, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Very helpful.. Excellent detail… Thank You

  28. Dot Warner on September 14, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    The H is silent.

  29. Joe Te on September 14, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    I am starting to grow some herb plants, but I notice I have more tiny bugs flying around, and my plant doesn’t look that fresh and healthy.
    I bring my basil plant out in the am to get some sun then I bring it indoors after. HELP! I am killing every single plant I bought

  30. joshua dindore on September 14, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Thanks for this. I’ve been struggling

  31. Regina Säveholm Olsson on September 14, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    In Sweden we use the fully mature flowers from Dill for flavoring vodka, and of course for boiling crayfish.

  32. Yanni P on September 14, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    What’s the difference between "grow" lights and normal LED light bulbs for indoor plants?

  33. Bridget R on September 14, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    This is my first time I’m trying to grow plants indoors. I’ve watched so many other videos and it seemed overwhelming. Right before I came across yours I was about to give up. You explained everything simply and you showed what the seeds look like. I appreciate the time and efforts you put into this video. Thank you so much you definitely helped me understand. You made me want to try it again:-)

  34. Karen Monroe on September 14, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I found your channel a few days ago and I’m hooked. I’m starting seeds for the first time (zone 8) and I seeded fall plants based on your part 1 and 2 videos. Then I found this one and I’m wondering if I should grow the herbs indoors…although my growing season is long…what to do? IF I seed a single container for the basil…can I use a 28oz tomato can with holes? Or is that too small? AND how many seeds per container? Thank you for giving such great info!

  35. ViveLeRamen on September 14, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I cannot keep my cats away from any plant I’ve ever had inside. 🙁

  36. Change4Good on September 14, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Remarkable teaching video🌟 Hardly surpassable. Much appreciated.

  37. Miriam Caro on September 14, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    So if I understand correctly. I should not move the herbs already growing outside into an indoor area. ?

  38. George Heustis on September 14, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    When I lived in Oregon we had 4 huge rosemary bushes growing in our yard and we could not get rid of them when we tried one time, but then I started using it in a lot of foods we eat. We had plenty of rosemary all the time. We gave it to our neighbors too. I never watered the rosemary or anything except occasionally I would trim it when I worked in the yard. It grew all year round even in the middle of Winter.

  39. Mike Karabin on September 14, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Love you word

  40. Jamie Bursic on September 14, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    another great video Jeff!

  41. Cat on September 14, 2022 at 6:59 pm

  42. Dale Strickland on September 14, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Thank you for giving me the confidence and knowledge to start my first herbs.

    To stop me from getting overwhelmed I’ll focus on a basil plant. Sounds like a good starter plant and pesto is delicious!

  43. Liana Shea on September 14, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Thank you so much for this video!! I’m about to start on my indoor herb journey and this video answered my questions. 🍃

  44. Josh Averageguy on September 14, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    14:06 I have put moss over mine. I always use it and it keeps everything as natural as possible technically:)

  45. K Personal on September 14, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Thanks!

  46. Lynsee Cain on September 14, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    your forward talking about these herbs helped me to grow my herb garden indoors now they are thriving now!! thanks!!

  47. Laura Elizabeth Cannon on September 14, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Man, that one herb takes its sweet thyme. Ba dum tss 🥁

  48. bookworm on September 14, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Did you put a paper bag in the container first?

  49. Donavon Grant on September 14, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Was hoping for something way more simple

  50. Julie A on September 14, 2022 at 7:09 pm
