You’ll be snipping fresh herbs and edible plants in your kitchen in no time.


Living in apartments doesn’t provide much access to Mother Nature. Here are a few tips to green-ify your apartment:

Pot ‘em up

Size matters when it comes to pots, so be sure that your plants have plenty of room to grow. Add some colorful pots to brighten up the place.

No backyard? No problem!

Line your plants along a window sill for a prettier effect. If there is no access to enough natural light, make sure to provide plant lighting.

Feed them right

Plants are similar to children, they need to be fed. Adjust the fertilizer according to your plant’s needs.

Use potting soil

Potting soil is better than regular, ground soil. Consult a professional on how much is needed based on plant.

Add herbs

Herbs are very easy to grow. Seedlings can be found at nurseries or your local supermarket.

*Buy seedlings from Tamimi and Lulu Supermarkets.

Try a little sunshine

Not all plants require the same amount of sunlight. Research your plants’ needs in order for them to grow and flourish.

Monitor plants

Patience, patience, and patience is what you have to learn. Plants take their time growing. Water your plants when needed only. In Riyadh’s humidity, you’ll need to mist the air around the plants to boost humidity level.
