Q&A: Are there any herbs I can grow in a basement apartment?

Question by gds437: Are there any herbs I can grow in a basement apartment?
My window sills are about 3 ft wide by 1 ft deep. They get some sunlight, but it’s not very bright.

you can grow your favourite veges in your basement, but first you have to intall lightings as a replacement of the sunlight. Install 40 watt florescent lamps 5 ft above the ground so that the plants can feel the heat.

  1. The important elements are: how many hours of sunlight and what is the temperature??

    Most herbs are from the Mediterranean. They like 8 to 10 hours of sun and very warm day time temps.

    The one herb that might do well in your location is mint. Just keep it VERY moist.

    Are there some outside steps where you could place a pot? It doesn’t take much to grow parsley, basil, etc.

    Good Luck!!
