I would like to grow some herbs indoors.
Could anyone recommend how I should go about this, and how I could
maintain a ready supply of the herbs throughout the year.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

A happy and healthy new year to you also. I'm doing fine, putting in
a lot of hours though. Once in a while I have time to drop in and do
a bit of lurking.

All joking aside, growing herbs indoors is not a very satisfactory method.
Most houses have insufficient light and humidity for these plants to thrive
long term and most herbs become large, mostly woody plants in time, not
conducive to windowsill pot growth.
I see you are posting from the UK. Provided you live in a temperate portion
of that country, you should be able to grow a pretty wide selection of herbs
outdoors year round. The climate in my zone 8 Pacific Northwest garden
should be very similar to much of that of Britain and I enjoy rosemary,
sage, oregano, thyme, marjoram, and chives year round. Parsley is present in
all but the coldest parts of winter and basil is a summer annual.

Most herbs require full sun, not from an indoor southern window, but outside in
full blasting hot sun. Your attempt will most likely not be satisfactory, but
you can try.

I agree. The herbs grown in full sun have a much better flavor than
those in a south window. There are a few herbs that will grow in part
sun and produce a good flavor. My advise is to pick the sunniest,
driest (well drained) area in your yard and plant herbs there. Most
don't need much space and seem to grow better on neglect than care.

Since we've only had 21 inches of water this year, I had to water my garden,
today. I hand water because it is such a waste to use sprinklers in any wind,
and it's windy. Anyway, to my surprise, the red admiral butterflies are
sipping from the lantanas WHICH ARE STILL BLOOMING! The parsley is fabulous is
the rosemary, thyme and believe it or not, basil. I have tomatoes in the
greenhouse and they are producing amazingly well for greenhouse growing. I'm
not all that proficient at growing vegetables.
This year it is my idea to have nothing but herbs on the north side of my pool.
It's a raised bed with sandy soil brought in when they built the pool. I
already have a bay laurel there, and I have another in the greenhouse waiting to
Yes, this year will be the year of the herbs.
Chia herb gardens are crap and a total waste of money, just like those
retarded Chia pets.
They are a lame scam from Mexico.
Screw the free trade agreement if that's the best they can come up with.
