Grow Herbs Indoors

The easiest way to save fresh herbs is to keep a plant full of them at your fingertips year-round. Oregano, rosemary and thyme are easy to grow but require a lot of light, so be sure you have sunny window available in the winter. Basil and cilantro can be tricky to grow as indoor herbs, but mint, chives and lemongrass are super easy and abundant enough to get you through the cold weather months. Look for varieties of all of these herbs that were specifically bred for indoor growth.
