To complement our feature on growing herbs indoors, we want to connect an expert directly to the Chowhound community to answer questions. This is the first time we're including something like this with a CHOW story, so please let us know if it works for you and if it's something you'd like to see more of in the future.
Rose Marie Nichols McGee will be checking in on this thread for the next two weeks to respond to your herb gardening questions and give advice. She's the president of Nichols Garden Nursery, a 60-year-old family-owned seed company and herb nursery located in Albany, OR. She is the author of Basic Herb Cookery and the co-author of The Bountiful Container, a guide to growing herbs, vegetables, fruits, and edible flowers in containers. She is also a fellow of the Garden Writers Association.
The story will be published in a few hours, and I'll add a link to this thread when it's live. Thanks for reading. I hope this will be fun for everyone!
