Best Herbs to Grow Indoors #Container_gardening






Basil: Start basil from seeds and place the pots in a south-facing window, it likes lots of sun and warmth.

Chives: Dig up a clump of chives from your garden at the end of the growing season and pot it up. Leave the pot outside until the leaves die back. In early winter, move the pot to your coolest indoor spot (such as a basement) for a few days, then finally to your brightest window.

Bay: A perennial that grows well in containers all year long. Place the pot in an east- or west-facing window, but be sure it does not get crowded, bay needs air circulation to remain healthy.

Thyme: You can start thyme indoors either by rooting a soft tip cutting or by digging up and potting an outdoor plant. Thyme likes full sun but will grow in an east- or west-facing window.

Rosemary: Start with a cutting of rosemary, and keep it in moist soilless mix until it roots. It grows best in a south-facing window.

Oregano: Your best bet is to start with a tip cutting from an outdoor oregano plant. Place the pot in a south-facing window.

Chervil: Start chervil seeds in late summer. It grows well in low light but needs temperatures between 65°F and 70°F to thrive.

Parsley: You can start this herb from seeds or dig up a clump from your garden at the end of the season. Parsley likes full sun, but will grow slowly in an east- or west-facing window.

Sage: Take a tip cutting from an outdoor plant to start an indoor sage. It tolerates dry, indoor air well, but it needs the strong sun it will get in a south-facing window.
