Herb growing in fall and winter

This time of year it is possible to grow herbs in many climates in spite of the chilly weather.  I grow more tender herbs in pots which are kept outside in summer and brought in before the temperature drops to 45 F.   I also like growing herbs such as basil year round in an AeroGrow AeroGarden .

AeroGrow AeroGarden 0019-00Z Garden Starter Tray is a great way to start seeds in the spring for your garden.  You can purchase an AeroGarden with seeds for specific herbs or if you already have one you can buy a kit with seeds or buy a Master Gardener Seedpod kitand plant whatever seeds you choose.  My seeds germinate faster and more reliably with an AeroGarden than any other method I have used.  The fact that the AeroGarden monitors water, light, and nutrients automatically is a big plus also.
