Indoor Herb Growing

Caitlin McGrath | Feb 25, 2002 04:26 PM

Thinking ahead a couple of months, and contemplating trying to grow some potted herbs on my windowsill. I have a south-facing window that gets good sun for a portion of the day, but I cannot have a window box outside. I'd prefer to start wih plants from the farmers' market, say, and not from seed.

Any advice? Which herbs will do best under these circumstances, and in small pots? Any particular growing tips, e.g., when is best to pinch back for certain herbs, how damp to keep soil, etc.? Which herbs do not do well indoors? Any and all advice gratefully accepted.
