Question by Rebecca? Do herbs grow better outdoors or indoors during the Southern Alaskan summer?
I just bought a bunch of herbs, and I can’t decide whether to plant them outside or inside. I live in Southern Alaska, so I’m not sure whether they would thrive outdoors or indoors. It could be warm enough to grow them outdoors (it got almost to 70 degrees last week!), but it gets rather chilly sometimes, especially when the wind blows.

Depends on the herb. Basil is very very cold sensitive, and doesn’t like anything much below 50 degrees. Most other are fine with chilly nights.
And unless you can provide a sunny window, outdoors would be better for them in terms of sunlight.
