Homeopathic herbs such as belladonna, hemlock and other related plants can be grown easily at home, whether in your garden or in a planter box in your windowsill. Growing your own homeopathic herbs provides your environment with plant life while making it possible for you to keep a supply of herbal medicine at your fingertips.
Prepare a growing box for your windowsill or patio by filling the bottom 3 inches with peat (or sphagnum) moss and potting soil. Make sure to leave the top half of the planter box empty.
Sow the herb seeds directly into the planter box of soil. Herbs like catnip, belladonna and calendula grow well in planter boxes. Cover the seeds with about a quarter-inch of potting soil.
Keep the seeds moist and covered with soil. Water the planter box once every four days with approximately 2 cups of water each time.
Allow the herbs to grow in a sunny window or on your patio. Many herb plants grow quickly and need to be trimmed to keep from overgrowing the planter box.
Use the herb cuttings to either mulch the planter box or as homeopathic medicines.
