I want to start growing herbs at home, for the first time. It'd have to be indoors. My Brooklyn apartment has a fire escape but there are plenty of squirrels and mice -- maybe even rats -- that might like to share.
Can anyone recommend:
(1) A good source of seeds, mail-order or local.
(2) Where I can buy dramatic-looking pots, preferably rectangular, to hang inside my windows.
The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has what looks like a good assortment of seeds, but ugly pots and trays. And I assume I'd be paying museum-gift-shop prices there. A friend with a worm bin at her home has already offered me some compost.
