Having problems with growing savory and other herbs indoors
I'm growing a handful of herbs indoors from a few packets of seeds I purchased online using a florescent grow light in my basement. This includes savory, marjoram, cilantro and basil. The lights are on for about 18hrs per day. I'm relatively new at this. I started the savory and marjoram from seed about three months ago.
The problem I'm having is specifically with the savory and marjoram. They both appear to be bolting - flowering and producing seeds instead of producing leaves and I don't really know why.
I didn't prune or cut them down in any way since they were planted. I'm pretty sure the soil is sufficient. It's Miracle-Gro bagged soil and I believe there's sufficient room in the pot for the root system.
I did a little reading on wikipedia about bolting, and it says the plant may be stressed in some way that would cause this. What else can I check? Can it ever return to normal growth, or are the plants now indefinitely going to flower?
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
