Which are the easiest herbs to grow indoors?

Question by TheGr8Pretender: Which are the easiest herbs to grow indoors?
I live in a small apartment with no yard/garden access, but would love to grow herbs in flower pots. Which herbs do best indoors and which do not require too much sunlight (I don’t get a whole lot of direct sunlight in my apt.)? My herbs of choice would be basil, rosemary and parsley. Tips or advice anyone?

  1. Go to Amsterdam’s and get as much of the stuff as you can lay your hands on. Get it for free. I know people, so I get it for free when I am over there. Go with a Friend. Sell all of it for the highest price you can get. Then split the cash with your Friend and change the euros into pounds and you will come back home to the UK loaded with cash.

  2. Rosemary will grow well as a houseplant in a window. Chives may grow also. Basil and parsley will grow,but be spindly and disappointing.There is a grow system for herbs (see link) I saw it for sale at a Bed Bath and Beyond store. It costs over $ 100, but looks like it works well and has it’s own grow-light. Might be fun if you want to invest the money

    There are many herbs that you could grow and trial. Parsley and Mint will do fine and Basil.
    Rosemary needs a lot of light.
