Video: Tips and Tricks for Indoor Herbs
Indoor Herbs
Summer may be over, but fresh herbs are here to stay—as your indoor companions.

Parsley, rosemary and thyme are just a few that are easy to grow inside. If you can provide 5 to 6 hours of good light each day, or you're willing to hang a couple of fluorescent tubes on chains, you can enjoy herbs throughout the winter.

Don't have much space? You don't need a lot. Herbs do well in relatively small pots. Watch this video to get tips on which herbs do best indoors and how to grow them, from planting to feeding.

Worried about indoor temperatures? Like humans, herbs prefer daytime temperatures of about 65°F to 70°F. And they'll be happy if you turn your thermostat down at night, even into the 50s.

Indoor herbs are the perfect houseguests: They're low-maintenance and help with the cooking!
