There are a surprising number of herbs that will thrive as indoor plants. All it takes is a bright space, a few well-chosen varieties and a spirit of adventure. To ensure success, it's usually best to start with healthy plants rather than seeds, especially at this time of year. Getting started You'll need a bright space, such as a large sunny window, a sunroom or a room with skylights. Most culinary herbs grow best with at least five to six hours of bright light; mint, parsley and chives do fine with four to five. Selecting containers and soil Almost any pot or container at least 6 inches or larger can be used for growing herbs as long as it has drainage holes. Use a fast-draining potting mix as garden soil will compact in containers and smother plant roots. Growing tips -- Kris Wetherbee 3. 5. 6. 8. 9. 11.
