10 Best Herbs for Indoors


A windowsill kitchen garden: Grow great-tasting herbs indoors.

You can grow herbs indoors this winter and add that just-picked taste to your meals, even when snow is drifting up against the kitchen window. You don't even need special lights—herbs fare just fine in a bright window. Here are the best herbs for growing on windowsills and the smart techniques you need to keep them happy and healthy until you can plant outside again.
Basil
Start basil from seeds and place the pots in a south-facing window—it likes lots of sun and warmth.
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.
Chervil
Start chervil seeds in late summer. It grows well in low light but needs temperatures between 65 F and 70 F to thrive.
