Many herb plants grow quite easily in containers and require only minimal care. However there are a couple of extra considerations, when growing them indoors. The first is ensuring they get enough sun to grow lush and healthy. Secondly, to have enough to really enjoy in your cooking, you'll need large plants and pots, so make sure you have enough space to keep them.
