Answer: In my experience it is difficult to grow sun loving herbs indoors on the window sill and keep them healthy year round, but you can try. In winter especially, it tends to be too dark for them. So I would use the south and west windows, or a spot where light from windows on two exposures can reach them to increase the length of time they are in direct sun as well as the intensity of the light. You might also supplement that with a fluorescent shop light, using a warm bulb and a cool bulb, so they receive about 16 hours of light a day. The bulbs need to be close to the foliage for best results. They will do much better outside during the summer months. Good luck with your project!
