What You Need to Know About the Herbs Plants

Herbs are grown to add flavor and inter­est to food, as well as for their medicinal value. Those chosen for indoor growing, have also been selected for their culinary and visual appeal. As sun-lovers, they will do best on a bright windowsill — ideally in the kitchen so that they are handy when needed — or perhaps in a well-lit living room or sunroom.

Individual pots may be grouped together to maintain humidity (important for soft-leaved herbs, such as basil), or planted in groups in larger containers. The herbs listed all have similar cultivation requirements.
